Everton Library wins
HLF support!

Latest news ...

Heritage Works is a registered charity that regenerates historic buildings whose cost of repair is uneconomic for the private sector. Working with a range of partners, Heritage Works, is able to acquire, refurbish and resell (or lease) property, operating as a 'developer motivated by heritage rather than profit'.

Our charitable objectives are:

  • To preserve the built heritage, particularly those buildings whose conservation and re-use will contribute to the regeneration of their locality.
  • To promote the public's awareness and appreciation of the historic environment and the processes involved in building conservation and regeneration.

Current activities include:

  • Development of a project to restore Everton Library as The Jewel on the Hill, a centre for creativity, heritage and enterprise, in partnership with Liverpool City Council and Hope Street Ltd.
  • Management of Causey Hall, a grade 2 listed former church hall in Halifax, which Heritage Works has converted into office suites to rent.

Recently completed commissions include:

  • Preparation of a delivery strategy for the Bradford Cathedral Corner, following on from an options appraisal study for Clergy House, Bradford.
  • Development of a Conservation Management Plan for Murgatroyd's Brine Pump No 1, Middlewich.
  • A study exploring a range of potential end uses and projects for Ancoats Dispensary in Manchester.
  • Submission of a successful Stage 2 bid for Heritage Lottery Fund bid for the restoration of Deane Road Cemetery, Liverpool, on behalf of the Deane Road Committee
  • A commission from the The Northern Way looking at the experience of public agencies and third sector organisations working in partnership in heritage-led regeneration projects.

The Trust is always on the lookout for potential development projects, and is presently exploring possibilities in Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Liverpool and West Yorkshire.

Heritage Works earns income from its projects and consultancy commissions. In the past it has secured revenue funding to support its operations from charitable trusts, private sponsors and public agencies.
