Heritage Projects (Jobs Fund)

Case studies

A range of projects have been selected as case studies from the 190 Jobs Fund heritage projects. They tell the stories of the projects, charting their progress and demonstrating the benefits that arise from projects to conserve heritage.

These case studies present a cross-section of Jobs Fund heritage projects from each funding category: World Heritage, National Heritage, National Trust, large and small community projects.

Project managers have provided this information through the application process, progress reporting, surveys and interviews. The case studies will be updated throughout the life of the projects.
