Cheshire & Warrington News


Social enterprise Big Heritage plans to breathe new life into two of Chester’s most famous landmarks after announcing a “ground-breaking” agreement with the city council.

The organisation signed terms for the sites on a three-year lease and will now manage the Water Tower and Bonewaldesthorne’s Tower, both of which are located on Chester’s historic Roman walls.

Big Heritage said it has ambitious plans for the two landmarks this summer, but for now the details remain under lock and key.

Dean Paton, the managing director of Chester-based Big Heritage, said: “These are buildings that have history literally dripping from every 14th-century nook and cranny.

“Both the Water Tower and Bonewaldesthorne’s Tower are iconic landmarks, often missed by the public.“

He added: “They are buildings that have excited and inspired us for many years, so to have the keys – and to be shown faith by Cheshire West and Chester Council to create something incredibly special – is really exciting for all of us at Big Heritage.“ Read More
