Lib Dems welcome Stockwood Discovery Centre announcement

Luton Liberal Democrats have welcomed the announcement of a £3.7 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for an ambitious plan to create a Discovery Centre within Stockwood Park Museum.

The Centre will focus on the themes of identity, community and the environment – explored through Luton’s rich pre-industrial history, which dates back to its foundation in the 6th century as a Saxon outpost on the river Lea.

The history of Luton’s urbanisation and transport system will be included in the new centre, which will incorporate green building techniques and solar panels, whilst the town’s last tram will form the centrepiece of the displays.

It will also provide a permanent home for the Wenlok Jug recently purchased by the museums service.
