In September 2016 the Knaresborough Civic Society sent a letter to Knaresborough Town Council calling for action to improve Knaresborough Castle to both enhance this important heritage asset and improve the tourist experience for visitors to our town.
A copy of our original letter is available to view here: Castle-Letter-Sept-2016.pdf
As a result of this letter Knaresborough Town Council resolved to set-up a working group made up of members of the Civic Society and Town Councillors to progress improvements to the castle.
The working group continues to meet on a regular basis and has so far improved signage to the castle and installed an illumination scheme for the castle.
The Civic Society is pleased with the progress made to date on the castle, but is continuing to work to see further improvements progressed.
