Industrial Heritage Board on LadyCroft Meadow

The Ecclesfield Conservation Group acknowledges the following organisations and people, for support of the Industrial Heritage Board unveiled at Ladycroft Meadow, St. Mary's Lane, Ecclesfield on 24th March 2012.

East Peak Innovation Partnership (EPIP)

The design and manufacture of the Heritage Board was paid for by grants provided by EPIP, without which the project would not have been possible. EPIP's support however went further than this, and we are especially grateful to Tegwen for the enthusiasm she showed at our meetings, and for the way she and Tim attended (and filmed) the unveiling ceremonies. You can click the link to see EPIP's excellent description of the project, or see their standard acknowledgement for the funding below ...

This project is supported by the East Peak Industrial Heritage Support Programme, which is jointly funded by English Heritage and the East Peak Leader Programme (with funding from Defra and the European Union).

Mel and Joan Jones

We thank Professor Mel, and Joan Jones, who were contracted to research Ecclesfield’s history, write the leaflet, and supply the illustrations. They did however, far more than this, including attending our meetings, and unveiling the boards for us. The text and some of the accompanying images on the Board and Leaflet are reproduced on this web site (and elsewhere in connection with the project), with their permission.

PB Graphics

Ecclesfield Graphics Design Firm, PB Graphics¬ were contracted to do the Graphic Layout and Typography. We are grateful for the high standard of this work, and for their providing permission to reproduce their graphics on this web site, as well as in promotional material and elsewhere in connection with the project.

Fitzpatrick Woolmer

... who contracted to provide the "Musketeer" stand.

John Fairest - Funeral Directors

We thank local funeral directors, "John Fairest" for providing, free of charge, such a magnificent buffet for people attending the unveiling of the Board.

St. Mary's Church

We thank "The Ecclesiastical Parish St Mary's Ecclesfield", for making their historic building available to people attending the unveiling ceremonies. This must have been a very valuable Saturday morning that the Church gave us in support of the Heritage Board.

Community Event Advice (CAE)

We thank CEA and in particular, Chris Fox for attending the unveiling and bringing his loud-hailer. This link brings up details of CAE, and other events which they have supported.

Everybody who attended the unveiling ceremony

There was a great turnout for the unveiling ceremony, including Trevor Bagshaw, Sheffield City Councillor, and member of the "Peak District National Park Authority". The video of the unveiling shows some of the other people who attended, and also gives our Chairman, John Ellis's remarks about other people to be thanked.

Members of the Conservation Group

Finally we thank our members. including Mr. Peter Barker who took on the difficult job of organising everything, as well as all those who helped various stages of the project, from conceiving and refining the idea, to concreting the Board's supports into the ground. Special thanks are due to Molly Barker and Sylvia Harrison who provided the teas and coffees that were so important to warm us up after the unveiling.
