Weathervane, Warwick Bridge Corn Mill, Carlisle

This is the Howard lion, the heraldic device, signifying that in 1839 this mill belonged to the Corby Castle estate, but the history of corn milling on the site is recorded from the C12. We are restoring the mill back to full operation in a £2m project benefiting from wide support including the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, trusts and local community.

Here is what we make of it

We are excited to announce the next chapter in the story of our charity.

Founded in 1965, we have had a formative role in UK civil society for over 50 years. In the 1980s we began bringing historic landmark buildings back into productive reuse. Since the 1990s we have contributed to some of the UK’s most successful urban regeneration programmes, demonstrating that historic areas are economic assets. For over a decade we have had a leading national role in traditional skills training, recognised with a European award. For 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage we were the UK national co-ordinator: within the context of Brexit and as one of 33 participating countries, we hosted a top-performing programme of over 600 events all over the UK.

The contribution cultural heritage makes in society should have no limits. We are now Cultura Trust; not constrained by place or barriers, we are free to be what society needs us to be. Culture – Cultura in Latin – is international and inclusive. It is about our traditions and values, the way we do things; it is creative and involves everyone. We are making all that NECT has stood for even more accessible and relevant.

Over the coming months we will be making announcements about our transformation, inviting you to be part of it. Here is what we make of it.
