Heritage Quest(ionnaire)...

Written by

Hello blogspotters. Today I am asking you to get involved in our quest to understand the history of The Witham Hall. In my last post, I talked about how the Witham has successfully gained a ‘first round pass ‘in a bid to a Heritage Lottery Fund, which would help significantly contribute to the Witham Hall's redevelopment if a second (final) round pass is awarded.
