Grant for Old London Road Dig and Renovation
Cllr Graham Webb let us know on behalf of Towton Parish Council that the application for a Heritage Lottery grant has been successful and they are able to go ahead with the work on Old London Rd.
Graham says:
“I am delighted to confirm that the Heritage Lottery Fund has decided to give Towton Parish Council a grant to undertake a small archaeological excavation at Old London Road, Towton and then to resurface parts of the bridleway that have deteriorated over the years.
We would like to thank all those who wrote to support our application or volunteered to participate.”
The archaeological excavation will take place between Thursday 23 June and Monday 27 June 2016 on sections of Old London Road (now a public bridleway) starting at the Towton end (by the barn).
The work will be managed by members of the University of York Archaeology Department.”
Once again thank you to everyone who lent their support towards obtaining the Lottery Grant and the larger project.
