Heritage Lottery Fund Support Update, December 2013

 John Hearle writes: At the September meeting of the NW HLF committee, an award of £1.5 million was agreed for "Revealing Oldknow's Legacy: Mellor Mill and the Peak Forest Canal in Marple."  On November 29, a "pre-startup" meeting between HLF, C&RT and MAT to finalise various details of the way the project would be handled. Once formal permission to start is given, the next step will be to appoint staff and sub-contractors. During the first three months of 2014 the three-year project will become fully operational.
