Cheshire East Council has given a £31,000 boost to Congleton Museum . The money is aimed at part funding the project to redevelop Bradshaw House into a new home for the museum. In the last few years Congleton Museum’s remit has expanded past the town limits to encompass exciting discoveries such as a 17th century gold ring from Middlewich, and a piece of Viking metalwork from Church Lawton. By moving to Bradshaw House the museum will be able to offer greater facilities and become a heritage hub for East Cheshire . The grant cheque was presented to the museum by Councillor David Brown, Deputy Leader of Cheshire East Council, during a visit to the current premises. The museum is a tremendous community asset and this boost will help the Bradshaw House project move forwards.
