We’re working on a funding bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund which could see up to £1 million invested into Stowe Pool to restore its historic characteristics.
In an extension of Lichfield Historic Parks project, we are aiming to bring Stowe Pool & Fields up to the same quality as Beacon Park, the Garden of Remembrance and Minster Pool & Walk, which underwent extensive renovation in 2010 and 2011.
If successful, the funding could be spent on improvements such a new entrance, refurbished paths, a new play area and more. The application will also feature ways to get the local community more involved in Stowe Pool through education and volunteering.
Our application needs to include outcomes for heritage, people and communities – find out more
Following a public consultation at the end of 2015 to find out local views, we are putting the finishing touches to our application to the Heritage Lottery Fund.
