There is wonderful news that exciting improvements at Conisbrough Castle are to go ahead. Last week it was announced £900,000 of Heritage Lottery Fund money has been given to the project.
The £1.1million project, to be run by Doncaster Council in partnership with English Heritage, will enhance the visitor experience and encourage greater community use for people of all ages. A new visitor centre housing educational and exhibition spaces will be created at the site’s historic Custodian Lodge, offering exciting interactive interpretation for visitors, new educational materials such as ‘Discovery Visit’ workshops for local schools, and training on historical investigation techniques for volunteers to get involved. A programme of community activity, learning and events will also be created and the site will benefit from improved access, signage and parking.
As the project progresses we hope to update you at regular intervals, and share with you further opportunities when you can get involved with this exciting project.
