Rare Norman castle to receive tourism boost

Residents of Doncaster, England hope that improvements to Conisbrough Castle, one of the few Norman castles left in the country, will attract more tourists to the area. To that end, they have been awarded UK£60,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The money is to be used to "encourage greater community use of the castle, enhance visitors' experiences and improve access." Success in this phase of the project may help Doncaster earn an additional UK£1m grant from the HLF for further improvements.
