The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has announced grants totalling £47m for six existing and potential tourist attractions across the UK.

Flax Mill Maltings in Shorpshire has received the largest amount of funding, with a grant of £12.8m awarded to restore a complex of 18th and 19th-century buildings for commercial, community and visitor purposes.

Winchester Cathedral in Hampshire has also been given a significant grant, receiving £10.5m to undergo essential conservation work in addition to creating new exhibitions, including six mortuary chests containing the remains of Anglo Saxon kings.

Windermere Steamboat Museum in Cumbria gained funding of £9.4m to reopen its new museum on the edge of Lake Windermere while Knole - a medieval palace in Kent that includes the former hunting lodge of Henry VIII - is set to be refurbished in addition to having a bespoke space built to help conserve a collection of Royal Stuart furniture.

Chester Farm in Northamptonshire - which provides evidence of human activity over a period of 10,000 years - will receive £4m and Brecknock Museum and Art Gallery in Powys, Wales, will see its gallery revitalised as a key heritage source for the area, receiving a grant of £2.5m.

The investment from HLF is a boost to the tourism industry as research conducted by the fund recently revealed that the heritage sector generates £26.4bn for the UK economy.
