Eling Tide Mill

Helping secure investment

CADS is proud to have been part of the consultancy team to assist with securing this critical Heritage Lottery Fund investment.

“In a major boost for the heritage of the area, the partnership of New Forest District Council and Totton and Eling Town Council, has received a grant of £1.3m from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The grant will develop the ‘Eling Experience’, a tourist attraction which includes the historic Grade II* listed Tide Mill; Heritage Centre and the open spaces encompassing Goatee Beach and Bartley Water.

Eighteen months of development with the assistance of experienced consultants has strengthened the partnerships’ aim to provide a scheme of benefit to the community. The project will include: essential conservation and restoration work to the mill; extension and development of the Heritage Centre, creating a new Learning Centre and Café; improvements to the surrounding open spaces allowing ‘access for all’ to these important natural heritage areas…”
