Protecting Wellington's Heritage


January provided excellent news for Wellington as Somerset West and Taunton (SWT) have moved to protect the historic Tonedale site.

Firstly, it completed the purchase of Fox's Field, a community-used ground in adjacent to Tonedale Mills to help enhance the field as a community space going forward. This came after collaboration between the Council, Tonedale Mills CIC and Transition Town Wellington. 

Secondly, SWT has successfully had a grant accepted by Historic England for £348,420 bid accepted to begin decontamination and roof repair works of the former Tone Works area as a start towards giving this important piece of heritage a prominent role in the community in the future.
