Big day for Bath Abbey’s future.

There’s just one day to go before Bath Abbey will hear if it has been successful in its bid for Heritage Lottery Fund money to help fund the Bath Abbey Footprint Project.

This is a programme of capital works – estimated at 19.3 million pounds – which will not only stabilise the ground beneath the Abbey floor but utilise Bath’s thermal waters for heating and provide a cafe, public toilets and space for choirs to practice.

My information is an announcement is due from the HLF on Tuesday, May 27th. A lot of people will be hoping it’s a positive one.

There are other worthy Bath causes looking for good news from the HLF this year – including the Cleveland Pools and Sydney Gardens.
