Keep Kirdford and Wisborough ‘Green’ Update

Boxal Bridge

Historic England (HE) listed Boxal Bridge Grade II in mid January 2018 and there was a 28 day period in which people could comment so it was accepted on 14  February.

Thus it came as a shock to learn on 27 March that WSCC has challenged this decision and has applied to DE-list the bridge.  They stated that they never received an email informing them of the opportunity to comment…..but they haven’t referred to the letter which was then sent by HE when they realised the email hadn’t arrived.

Given the Easter period and a phone call to those involved in listing we have currently until 30 April to mount a case for retaining the listing.  It clearly remains under threat.  To that end KKWG has launched an Appeal to retain the services of a Historic Buildings Consultant to challenge the DE-listing.

If you wish to contribute, amounts can be sent straight to the KKWG bank account Sort Code 30-94-41 Account No. 41666168 or by cheque made out to KKWG and sent to KKWG c/o ‘Crofts” Kirdford Road, Wisborough Green RH14 0JH. All donations will be very much appreciated.
