Gainsborough MP, Sir Edward Leigh, has welcomed the announcement of a Development Grant for Lincoln Cathedral backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

He said: “Lincoln Cathedral is the great pearl of our county, and was once one of the major pilgrimage sites of all Europe as well as the tallest building in the world. The Development Grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund will move the Lincoln Cathedral Connected project into the next stage, addressing vital conservation needs, providing employment opportunities, and strengthening the links between the Cathedral and the community at large. I commend the Dean, Chapter, and staff for all the care and concern they’ve put into this latest success.”
