The Restoration of Astley Castle

In July 2012, the Landmark Trust opened the newly-restored Astley Castle near Nuneaton, Warwickshire to the public. The castle, which dates back to the 1200s, was damaged by fire in 1978 and had fallen beyond a normal conservation approach. This film shows how Landmark finally found a solution by inserting modern accommodation within the ancient walls.
