Supported by English Heritage

A grant of £90,000 was received by English Heritage to restore the Flint Arch, a Grade II listed folly constructed in the 18th century.

The south side was previously obscured by dense vegetation, and the structure was crumbling.

Thanks to this funding, the area has been opened up to allow the public to better admire the folly, and the arch has been treated to prevent deterioration.
