Championing History with Scaffolding

By on Dec 19, 2019 in Blog, Scaffolding |

One of the biggest construction projects to take place in Tamworth in 2020, will be the transformation of Tamworth Castle.
Like so many other redevelopment projects, investing in the finest scaffolding in Tamworth from Network Scaffold is the only way to guarantee the best possible result.

Building the Future of our Heritage

The new-look Tamworth Castle will transform the top floor with an interactive exhibition dedicated to the town’s rich Anglo-Saxon heritage.
The ‘Battle and Tribute’ display will turn the space into a mead hall, an immersive combat film experience and a unique touch-table battle strategy game.
Tamworth Castle will also be getting more pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard to display alongside items with the castle’s collection.

The top floor of the ancient castle is being transformed and improved, including upgrades to the infrastructure, a new ceiling and lighting plus restorative work to walls and windows. All of this work will make way for the installation of the new gallery, ready for opening in 2020.

Cllr Jeremy Oates, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Heritage and Growth, commented on the project, saying,

“The plans for the state-of-the-art Battle and Tribute gallery are very impressive and unlike anything we’ve had at the castle before.

“It will really bring our rich Anglo-Saxon history to life, including the role of our famous warrior queen Aethelflaed, and will be the perfect showcase for an increased number of items from the Staffordshire Hoard and how this incredible treasure trove fits into the wider history of the Kingdom of Mercia and beyond.”
