Northwood Cemetery Heritage Project

In July 2014 the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) announced that it would ‘earmark’ £1,064,000 for restoration works at Northwood Cemetery. The Friends of Northwood Cemetery and the Isle of Wight Council (the landowners) are working in partnership to bring this exciting project to fruition.

The HLF will advance £75,300 (50% has been received already) so that the Board, working in partnership with the IW Council, can appoint professionals (Project Managers, Architects, Structural Engineers, Surveyors, Conservationists and Landscape Assessment consultants) to specify the works in detail (see the November 2014 Newsletter for the latest news).

Then, in early 2015, it is envisaged that a further application to the HLF will be made to draw down the balance to enable a start to be made on-site in 2016.
