Our Heritage Project is based on conserving, preserving and sustaining the Parish Hall as a vital community facility and as a building with significant heritage value, locally and beyond.
Detailed records of activities for this project can be found on these pages (also shown in the menus to the right of this page):
The Project was initiated by East Worlington Parish Hall Trustees and the project plan developed by Worlington Heritage Project Group which is an Action Group consisting of Trustees and other members of the community.
Funding towards the Heritage Project has been provided by donations from member’s of the community, fund raising events and grants and awards from our benefactors. Without the support of all of these resources the Heritage Project would not be possible.
The two main needs driving the project, which has conditional grant support based on these requirements are the conservation and preservation of the Parish Hall and the need to preserve the heritage of the Hall, and record community history.
Building conservation and preservation
- Periodic renewal of the thatch
- Install an appropriate heating solution
- Remove decaying floor timber and alter for a more sustainable solution
- Improve internal environment by reducing issues associated with dampness and condensation
- Create storage below and above the stage
- Upgrade the electrical infrastructure
- Remove the ceiling and expose original roof space
- Create a window on the inside of the old barn door so it can be viewed internally
Heritage research, investigation, interpretation and learning
- Research the historical development of the Hall and the evolution of the community from C17th
- Better understand the relationship between the Hall and the community over the centuries
