Exciting things are happening in Swindon's Railway Village at the moment. New investment is enabling neglected buildings to be repurposed and refurbished. Historic England have made the area a Heritage Action Zone.
Over the next 4 years, Historic England will work with Swindon Borough Council and other organisations on a Regeneration Masterplan to revitalise the wider area.
For Heritage Open Day 2020, Historic England and The Mechanics Institute Trust commissioned Create Studios to produce a film of Swindon's Railway Village including a digital tour of the newly refurbished Pattern Church.
"I just wanted to thank you for the huge effort you all made in order to create the Heritage Open Day film in such a short time. I am so happy with what you have produced, it is exactly what I had hoped for and will be so helpful to promote the Heritage Action Zone over the next four years. I have also had such positive feedback from all the other stakeholders. Looking forward to hopefully to working with you again in the future"
Karen Phimister, Heritage Action Zone, Swindon Borough Council.
