SPRING IS IN THE AIR

The historic Abbey has been in the news this month after Northampton Borough Council was given the green light by the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop plans to restore and conserve it. The £250,600 of development funding will be used alongside funding from the Borough Council and Friends of Delapre Abbey to produce detailed plans over the course of the next 18 months to go forward as a bid for around £3.5 million in the second stage of the Heritage Lottery Fund application.
