Evaluation of 116 High Street, Boston

A glossy summary of our Evaluation of the Conservation and Development of 116 High St Boston has been published by Heritage Lincolnshire.   Click here to see the report

Constructed in red brick with limestone dressings, the building is Grade II* listed due to its architectural and historic significance and has many surviving original features, and is reputed to be the site of Lincolnshire’s first bank. It had been allowed to fall into dereliction and despite the efforts of local people the building was at risk of imminent collapse. Heritage Lincolnshire raised a package of funding from a range of sources (including ERDF, Heritage Lottery Fund and English Heritage) which has enabled the conservation of 116 High Street and the development of the site as a new social enterprise hub.

The evaluation provided an independent and robust assessment of the conversation and its potential future benefits to funders, stakeholders and to the communities in and around High St.
