The HLF has announced that it will be awarding £10.3 million for the creation of The Hold, a new heritage centre for Suffolk. This will provide a new home for Suffolk’s archives. The project is a collaborative venture between Suffolk County Council and the University of Suffolk. The Hold will be located on the university’s marina campus in Ipswich.

The HLF had earlier awarded Stage 1 funding of £538,100 [details].

An archaeological trench was cut across part of the proposed site in August 2017.
