HLF awards initial support funding to Norton Priory

Frank Hargrave, Director of Norton Priory said: “We’re so excited about getting a first round HLF pass for the Norton 900; Monastery to Museum project. 2015 is the 900th anniversary of the site and to see the 12th century undercroft restored and the museum developed to fully display and complement the archaeological collection from the most excavated monastic site in Europe will be fantastic. The pass includes £300,000 in development funding which will support us in preparing for the next stage. We’ll be keen to ensure that the new interpretation will be innovative and exciting so no doubt you’ll see us in the coming months browsing your galleries looking for ideas”.
