Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the National Lottery Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “Over the past 25 years, more than 44,000 heritage projects have been awarded over £8 billion of National Lottery funding.

“Our heritage has been completely transformed. This is our way to say thank you for all your support.”
