Part funding for the new building came from WREN - see description3121 viewsThe museum had been successful in raising some of the money for the new building thanks to Landfill Tax credit funding of 25,000 from the Waste Recycling Group Ltd, administered by WREN. It also raised further contributions from the Cheshire Rural Tourism Development Grant Scheme to enhance the experience for visitors, especially those that make such efforts to visit Cheshire. This still however left a large proportion of the costs to be met by the museum funds.
