Exciting news from Cogges

Cogges has had a terrific start to the new year! We're delighted to say that we'll be launching an ambitious and exciting £1.95m project exploring 1,000 years of Cogges' history and interpreting the site's many stories for visitors and educational groups.

To support us in this exciting venture, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has provisionally agreed to grant Cogges Heritage Trust just over £1m. It is a reflection of the importance and popularity of Cogges in the local community, the heritage value of the site and the confidence the HLF has in the Trust’s long-term financial sustainability.

More details will be announced later in the year, giving us time to start detailed planning before sharing ambitions and trialing ideas with visitors and the Cogges community.

This is a project that builds on everything that has already been achieved since the site was reopened in 2011, and will help to ensure access to Cogges for generations to come.

Thank you for your continued support and friendship and we look forward to an exciting few years ahead.
