Work is due to begin on the restoration of Bridge Cottage, Uckfield, in September. It is expected to take 12 weeks.
Attractions at the Bridge Cottage Heritage Centre will include educational programmes, hands on heritage activities for all ages, local history and craft events, and a heritage hub for historical research.
It should open late next year. Read more about the Heritage Lottery grant here: Bridge Cottage secures £1m in lottery funding.
