Southchurch Hall Museum, Prittlewell Priory Museum and Leigh Library are the buildings that will benefit from the grants after three successful expressions of interests were submitted to Heritage England's COVID-19 Emergency Heritage at Risk Response Fund.

Cllr Carole Mulroney, Liberal Democrat councillor for Leigh and Cabinet Member for Environment & Planning, said: "It's fantastic news that Heritage England have awarded these grants to three of our most cherished and historic buildings.

"It means essential maintenance and repair works can be carried out to ensure these buildings reopen to the public and thrive once again having been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic."
