Call for locals to help develop heritage and culture across North Lincolnshire

Residents and visitors to Barton-upon-Humber are being invited to have their say on the future development of Baysgarth House as part of an ambitious plan to develop heritage and culture across North Lincolnshire.

You can share your thoughts on the Grade II listed Georgian building by completing the short survey on their website.

Baysgarth House is one of many treasured historical buildings in the town, and is situated in 30 acres of parkland, which retained coveted Green Flag status last month.

The survey is the first stage of an ongoing consultation which will help to inform a new plan shaping the future of culture and heritage in North Lincolnshire.

As well as further improving the way venues across our communities present our histories, the plan will also consider how the area’s heritage is promoted to visitors.

The views of residents will be requested throughout the process, with opportunities for local communities to:

  • Be celebrated through the histories and stories of Baysgarth House.
  • Explore and learn about their heritage.
  • Tell their stories and collaborate in exhibitions and projects.

Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for rural communities, said:

“We are launching the exciting plans for heritage and culture in North Lincolnshire by asking residents for their thoughts on Baysgarth House and their suggestions for the next chapter in the story of this iconic local landmark”.

“We are eager to understand what the community would like to see and what the people who visit think could develop the cultural offer in the town further”.

“North Lincolnshire already boasts many vibrant cultural towns, and with the help of residents, we want it to be an area where everyone’s history is celebrated”.
