The Restoration of Astley Castle

Start date: 15th January 2011 until 13th March 2011

What happens when you give a castle a facelift? Visit Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery and find out all about the restoration of Astley Castle in Bedworth, North Warwickshire.

This exhibition features colour photographs of work in progress, where visitors can view the work that has taken place so far to the grand building. Included on the display in the Landing Gallery are archaeological and geological artefacts that were found on Astley Castle's grounds during the restoration process.

In the 1200s, Astley Castle was built by the Astley family but later owned by the Newdigate Family. The castle was badly damaged during a fire in 1978 and has only recently begun to be restored to its former glory. The restoration project is funded and carried out by The Landmark Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The exhibition also includes art work made as a response to the restoration work. Assisted by local Artist Kasia Howard through a series of workshops, local schools and community groups have created original pieces to accompany the exhibition.

Councillor Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Recreation & Culture stated:"I have no doubt that this thoroughly interesting record of changes to Astley Castle will fascinate local people and encourage them to celebrate their local landmarks with pride. It is a pleasure to see community groups and schoolchildren taking the opportunity to share their opinions about the transformations happening in their borough. For younger generations, this will provide an invaluable insight into the history and significance of keeping heritage sites alive in their surroundings."

                                                                                                   Alongside The display interactives will be available which will help families explore the exhibition with fun! Don't forget, entry to the museum is FREE for all visitors!
