Good news for castle lovers and history buffs....the Castle Studies Trust are now able to offer grants of up to £7500 for the funding of investigative projects starting from September this year.
Jeremy Cunnington, the Castle Studies Trust's Chair of Trustees, says of this increase in funding "This is great news as it will allow us to fund bigger and more diverse projects and is part of our long term aim of continuously increasing the maximum amount we can award per grant to the point where we can look to fund a full scale research excavation."
The Trust enables the investigation and surveying of castles around the UK, improving our understanding of these magnificent buildings and raising awareness of their sometimes perilous state.
