Lanarca and Landscape Agency lead stage-two bid for Hackfall

The restoration of a Yorkshire garden may begin next year if Heritage Lottery Fund money can be obtained.

The Hackfall Trust has reappointed project manager Lanarca for a stage-two submission for £1m of Heritage Lottery Fund cash to restore the 47ha Yorkshire garden. The Landscape Agency is lead consultant for the stage-two bid, due in June for an autumn decision. Work may start in spring 2007 if the bid succeeds. The stage-one proposals were successfully submitted in March 2005. Lanarca director Rachael McCormack said the project will “protect and enhance this visionary landscape design”. Principal project co-ordinator Christian Walker said Hackfall designer William Aislabie was “renowned for being one of the most important historical designers of the 18th century.” Aislabie also designed the UNESCO world heritage site nearby Studley Royal water garden at Fountains Abbey. Plans for Hackfall include restoration of the fountain pond, Mowbray Castle and 14m waterfall, reopening of disused footpaths and creation of the post of Hackfall officer by the Woodland Trust.
