The project, with a  duration of at least 5 years and is expected funding will be in the region of 1.5 to 3 million pounds to complete the completed project .

The project scope will cover all works involved in the refurbishment, including all planning and securing of specialist skills and equipment required to accomplish the task.

The project commenced on the 1st of  September 2019  and at present is a small number of volunteer enthusiasts and would welcome anyone to come and get involved with us there is always lots to do.
