Heritage Lottery Fund support for Historic Environment Fisheries

Our colleagues in the English branch of WA Coastal & Marine have just announced that they have been awarded £92,400 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, Fishing Industry Protocol for Archaeological Discoveries: Establishing a Historic Environment Fisheries Liaison Officer. This project proposes the appointment of a Heritage Lottery Fund supported ‘Historic Environment Fisheries Liaison Officer’ (HEFLO) working in Sussex to engage with fishing communities to protect heritage. This project will help to carry out similar work to what we’ve been doing in Scotland as part of Project SAMPHIRE and should see lots of great discoveries and chances to participate in maritime heritage – See more at the Wessex blog post here.
