Welcome to the website of the Hartlebury Castle Preservation Trust.
The Trust has been formed with the aim of acquiring Hartlebury Castle from its current owners, the Church Commissioners. The Trust intends to preserve the property for education, the use and enjoyment of everyone and to allow the Hurd Library to remain intact and located within the Castle.
In April 2013 we were very pleased to announce the success of our round one Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) application. In June 2014 we submitted our round two HLF application. We are delighted to announce that we have been successful.
The Hartlebury Castle Preservation Trust (HCPT), with partners Worcestershire County Council (WCC) and Museums Worcestershire (MW), have been awarded £5M by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to preserve the historic Castle and its valuable assets.
The Trust can now buy Hartlebury Castle with its surrounding 43 acres of parkland and embark on programmes for conservation and activities.
We hope you’ll want to continue to support us and be part of our story.
