Warwick Castle Restoration Project

£3 million invested as part of five year heritage restoration project

 

At Warwick Castle, visitors can experience more than 1,100 years of jaw-dropping history, magic, myth and adventure. Full to the turrets with shows and attractions that bring history vividly back to life all year round!

Warwick Castle is a medieval castle, originally developed from a wooden fort built by William the Conqueror in 1068, and needs constant care and restoration to keep it in great condition.

The Castle is undergoing a five year heritage restoration project, investing over three million pounds to update the castle masonry and restore the interior of the main house.

Currently in phase two of the five year plan, 2018 saw extensive masonry work by skilled Treasure and Son’s to repair and restore areas that have been damaged or have worn away over the time. The various stonework conservation and restoration work has cost £150,000 and has been completed with strict historical accuracy as the castle is a protected building.

One final large scale restoration project that is to be undertaken in 2019 and into 2020 is to restore weathered stone work along the South Front of the Castle.

This work is the fifth phase in a 34 year project along this side of the Castle, with the first work starting in 1984.
