Swadlincote has a fascinating industrial history. Its major period of growth happened in the nineteenth century when the mining and pottery industries flourished. Though the local industries have all but disappeared the associated nineteenth century buildings survive to give Swadlincote the special character it has today. Sadly many of these have been neglected or badly treated in the more recent past. Some have already been transformed with grant assistance under the previous HERS scheme. It is hoped that the current grants will continue to result in such high quality restoration of disfigured buildings and the proper care of those that remain undamaged.

We have a small annual fund for making discretionary grants of up to 40 per cent (maximum £2,000) for works to historic buildings. All listed buildings and historic buildings that contribute to the character of conservation areas are eligible.
The grants are designed to promote the careful conservative repair of buildings at risk and the restoration of buildings that have lost historic architectural detailing.
