Our Future

The Friends are exploring a number of different options regarding possible future uses of the site as they make progress in removing the signs of past neglect and making good the damage from theft and vandalism.

These plans seek to embrace the heritage of the site – its mining and social history, whilst aiming to bring new life to the site, through Friends activities and working with the local community and partner organisations.

This page is designed to provide space for development suggestions and report on the progress being made.

  • June 2014 – FoHC take ownership of the site
  • February 2015 – Conservation report survey (Rance Booth Smith Architects)
  • November 2015 – Received grant from the AESSEAL Charitable
    Trusts Grassroots Endowment Fund for South Yorkshire, administered by South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation. Provides funds for site insurance 2015-16, development of FoHC promotional materials to raise awareness and community engagement, and practical tools and equipment for volunteer work on site.
