Architectural Heritage Fund Grant

OpenHand OpenSpace is delighted to be awarded a grant of £2900 from the Architectural Heritage Fund for a Project Viability Report.  This is to assess plans for the future sustainable use of the Keep, and includes a new structural survey and costing of likely works needed.  OHOS has commissioned Mark Lovell Design Engineers for this project, as Mark recently worked on the very similar Devizes Keep, and therefore has good knowledge of the problems presented by the Reading's Keep.  This is an important step towards securing the future of the artist's studios and art gallery.
