Crewe’s Heritage gets a Boost

Christ Church Crewe

Crewe Town Council has been successful in securing funding from the Architectural Heritage Fund to employ a heritage project officer for Crewe. The project will look at the future of Christ Church as well as other aspects of the town’s heritage and seek to protect and promote the town’s historical assets and character.

Speaking on this, the council’s Regeneration Manager, Lindsay Lewis, said, “We are so pleased to be working with the Architectural Heritage Fund on this exciting opportunity for the town. We are now advertising for the project officer, which will be a 2- year fixed term post.

“Our aim is to bring this important building back in to use. As well as this, the officer will be looking into the other key projects, such as heritage plaques and trails and recording some of Crewe’s most attractive and iconic local buildings. Working with the town’s Heritage Working Group, the Diocese of Chester and Town Board partners we hope to share Crewe’s history of industry, skills and the community which built this town from the ground up.’

Information on the project and the new role are available via the council’s website as well as contacting the council directly via
