D H Lawrence Heritage Centre reprieve

Nottingham University has come to the rescue and agreed a £105,000 grant to ensure Durban House in Eastwood remains open for the next two years. Originally, it was built as offices for the Barber Walker Colliery Company and was bought and restored by Broxtowe Borough Council in the 1990s. It houses the D H Lawrence Heritage Centre which is under threat because of cuts in council funding.
