Sudbury Gasworks: Rescued and Restored
Sudbury Gasworks is a unique, characterful and charming building in the heart of Sudbury. The Sudbury Gasworks Restoration Trust has successfully applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund and other funders for the money necessary to develop a project to rescue, preserve and refurbish the building. The gasworks will become a new community resource for everyone. We will also tell the story of the gasworks and the industrial development of the Sudbury estate, as well as research and interpret the wider historical context of Sudbury parish. But to do any of this successfully, we need your input Please help us deliver the right project for you by answering the following questions. It shouldn't take you longer than about 10 to 15 minutes.
