One thought on “Heritage Lancaster: Shaping the Future

  1. Congratulations on ‘Shaping the Future’ project
    Might I advocate that the Future for the Castle Setting needs to embrace the Future use for the Royal Castle!
    The City of Lancaster, its Castle and its setting have a great potential and need to be viewed alongside perhaps Windsor, Edinburgh, Caernarvon Castle etc.
    Lancaster Castle is the heart and home of the Duke of Lancaster and this is a great opportunity for the Iconic Castle and its setting to regenerate Lancaster and the region.
