Construction students go behind the scenes at Auckland Castle
20 March 2018
In a once in a century opportunity, construction students from across County Durham are travelling back in time to learn more about their future trade at a 900-year-old castle.
The special series of educational tours taking place this week offer a detailed insight into the multi-million-pound conservation project at Auckland Castle.
More than 70 school and college students will be led around the Bishop Auckland castle by experts from Meldrum Construction Services Ltd.
The groups will tour the Castle, observing the work taking place and learning about the specialist processes, techniques and challenges of working with an historic building.
The conservation project at Auckland Castle is set to complete this year, with the official re-opening of the historic palace taking place on December 1, 2018.
Public Behind the Scenes Tours will re-launch on Saturday, March 24. For more information click here.
