The Bacup Townscape Heritage Initiatives main aims and priorities were to secure a viable economic future for Bacup town centre. Rossendale Council received £1.5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2013 for the five-year project to regenerate the town centre by investing in the built heritage and working to preserve and enhance the historic character.
The Council appointed Rosslee to undertake the restoration of a number of key historic buildings across St James Street and St James Square by repairing, and restoring the building fabric while replacing unsympathetic shop fronts.
Works under this contract, which were carried out under 3 separate phases, included sympathetically upgrading the buildings façade while reinstating original architectural details. The conservation works to the buildings allowed Rosslee operatives to utilise their specialist heritage skill sets.
Project value: £927,000
