We’re shortlisted for The Historic England Angel Awards

Visitor entrance at Chatham Historic Dockyard

We are so excited to announce we’ve been shortlisted for The Historic England Angel Awards in the category of Best Major Regeneration of a Historic Building or Place!

The award recognises projects that have seen large scale investment put into saving, rescuing or regenerating a building or place.

Most recently, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust has undertaken an ambitious project to transform the Fitted Rigging House, creating new opportunities for businesses to locate within the building, supporting the wider sustainability of The Historic Dockyard site.  The project will also provide a new Volunteer Centre of Excellence and improved library and archive with easier access for the public.

The Heritage Angels awards celebrate the efforts of people taking action to champion their local heritage. Founded by Andrew Lloyd Webber and co-funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, the winners will be chosen from a panel of judges from all over the UK including Andrew Lloyd Webber himself.


While the five category winners will be decided by a panel of expert judges, each project is now seeking the public’s support to win a further award. All 15 shortlisted projects – three per category – are in the running for the Historic England People’s Favourite award chosen solely by the public. Voting is now open!

Cast your vote at Voting closes 18 Nov 2018.
