The Historic Heart of Gainsborough is up your street!

Gainsborough Townscape Heritage Project

The Gainsborough area is a beautiful, historic and characterful part of Lincolnshire that is yet to be discovered by many people. West Lindsey District Council are preparing to make a funding application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to help restore and improve some of the historic buildings in Gainsborough town centre. As well as improving the town centre, this will also help local people and visitors better understand the built heritage of the town. 

We would like to know what you think about the buildings and heritage in Gainsborough town centre. 

This survey will only take a few minutes but you will be helping to shape how part of Gainsborough’s heritage is presented to the public.
