Papplewick Pumping Station to receive more than £500,000 in Government cash


Papplewick Pumping Station is one of 70 cultural organisations across the country set to be given a financial boost by the Government in a bid to improve people’s access to arts, support local economic growth through culture and safeguard vital local collections for future generations.

The pumping station will have a share of a pot of £58.8 million which will see arts venues transformed, upgraded and created as part of the government’s plans to make sure everyone, no matter where they live, can access the UK’s world-renowned culture.

This cash is now much needed after the site was placed on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk list last year.
