Hadrian’s Wall receives £537,185 funding boost

The Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site has received a £537,185 funding boost from the SITA Trust for a project to be managed by Hadrian's Wall Heritage.

Linda Tuttiett, chief executive of Hadrian's Wall Heritage said: "This is fantastic news for Hadrian's Wall and we are very grateful to SITA Trust for recognising the importance of this project for the future of the World Heritage Site.

"The grant means parts of the central section of Hadrian's Wall, some of which are currently on English Heritage's Heritage at Risk register, can be properly conserved.
"Access to the Wall will be improved at several other locations and new signage and interpretation will be put in place to help to attract more visitors to the Roman frontier."
