Cogges' Next Steps

Cogges continues to evolve, and there is much more to be done. The Trust is committed to investing in improvements for both visitors and volunteers.

By 2019 we hope to have put in place a number of developments and activities. The stories of Cogges will be better told in new displays and activitiesin the manor house and grounds; an archaeological dig in the fields will help visitors find out more about how the land was used over the centuries; the Barley Barn will be kitted out as a space for school parties and adult groups to gather and learn about Cogges; a new dedicated and accessible space will allow volunteers to congregate; and new toilets near the entrance to the site will be welcomed by all!

These developments wouldn’t be possible without the offer of just over £900k from the Heritage Lottery Fund. We still need to raise £425k, and hope that everybody who cares about Cogges will be able, in however large or small a way, to help us reach this target.


Cogges is for everyone – now and in the future.
