Townscape Heritage Scheme

The Bridge Street Project

Education resources linked to the Council's Townscape Heritage Scheme, the conservation and restoration of the historical buildings of Bridge Street in Worksop, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The site has activities that can be done at home and are self led. There are three projects on the site. Pick from the following or why not do all three:

What is the Worksop Townscape Heritage?

With thanks to National Lottery players, Bassetlaw District Council were delighted to receive £1.3 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund, as part of their Townscape Heritage Initiative.

The scheme has been boosted to £2.3 million to ensure that a concentration of Bridge Street’s historic building stock will benefit from conservation and restoration, ensuring that these important heritage assets are retained for future generations.

Not only will the scheme offer grants for building repairs and architectural reinstatement, it also aims to bring heritage to the community with a variety of activities, events and training and learning opportunities throughout the lifecycle of the scheme, which completes in October 2022.

Memories of Bridge Street Project - Can you help?

As part of the scheme, we are running a project called Memories of Bridge Street, and currently we are asking the public to dig out their old photographs of the buildings which fall under the scheme, (see gallery), so that they can be shared amongst the local community. 

Please e-mail your photographs to or you are welcome to pop into the Council offices on Potter Street where we can take a scan of your photographs.  You will also see us out and about on Market days over the Summer, asking people to share their stories of Bridge St – we are sure they will be many and varied! If you have any questions about the Memories of Bridge Street project or the Townscape Heritage Initiative generally, please call Jane Harrison (Townscape Heritage Project Officer) on 01909 533 427.
