About Heckington Village Trust
Established in 1972 the Village Trust was formed after the Pearoom had been closed for 10 years, the windmill was in need of repair and the station buildings were at risk.
Members of the Trust worked hard to save these important heritage buildings in the village which now form part of the Village Conservation Area.
