 Eye - A Castle Connected 

This is an exciting new project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage and Mid Suffolk District Council.  Over the next year the castle will be undergoing repair works to the curtain walls and folly so that access to the castle can be maintained and secured for the future.  Alongside this, new interpretation and school resources will be developed to better connect the castle with the surrounding town.  We will be working with local schools, Eye Town Council and community groups to help make the most of this opportunity.

A new friends group for Eye Castle will be established over the course of the project.  If you would be interested in joining the group, or finding out further information about the project, please contact the Countryside Team.
