#036 Saving Richmond Old Grammar School Buildings

Welcome back to the next episode of Inside Yorkshire. In this episode we find out about the history of Richmond Grammar school, the success of past pupils and plans for the forthcoming development. Aided by a first-round grant from the Heritage Enterprise Lottery Fund and from the Architectural Heritage Fund, Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust is currently working on plans to restore and re-purpose this wonderful, iconic building, which sits across the river from The Station.

The Trust is working towards saving the School to be used as a sustainable ‘Community Hub’, providing community facilities with complementary commercial use to ensure its future viability.

About the Guest:

In this episode Susan talks with James Gravenor,  Chair of the Old Grammar School Project Committee. James has worked for many years with the ongoing running of Richmond station and is now enthusiastically involved with the forthcoming plans to develop the old grammar school buildings.
