Eastern Hub to run virtual visits to Morgan Sindall’s Norwich Castle project

8 January 2021

The Eastern Hub is running a series of virtual site visits to Norwich Castle where a £13.5m renovation has begun. This project will run into 2022 and the CIOB will follow the project through to completion. 

The National Lottery Heritage Fund supported scheme recently reached a significant milestone, when project contractor Morgan Sindall Construction commenced the substantive work required to recreate the Keep’s original 12th century layout. 

Ensuring the trip back through nine centuries can be enjoyed by the maximum number of visitors is integral to the project’s aims. The plans are set to make all five levels – from basement to battlements – fully accessible for the first time in the structure’s history. 

Later phases will see innovative uses of projections and digital technologies to animate the building with the sights and sounds of King Henry I’s East Anglian fortress.
