Sleaford Projects

There are two projects that Sleaford Town Council is involved with, which were originally managed by independent groups. The projects are now formally constituted under Sleaford Town Council.

The projects are the Sleaford Castle and the Sleaford Neighbourhood Plan.

The details of both projects can be found as you scroll down this page.

Sleaford Castle

The Sleaford Castle Heritage Group (an advisory committee of the Town Council) which is comprised of councillors and representatives from the Sleaford & District Civic Trust and other bodies) is advising the Council on a major project to bring Sleaford Castle into the public's view, improve accessibility and present the history of this interesting Norman Castle. The Group endeavours to learn as much as they can about the Castle's construction and its place in Sleaford's history.

An educational project, including a limited geophysical survey, was completed in 1993. There was also a successful project conducted in about 2018 on the Castle by pupils in years 7/8 at Carre's Grammar School and in June 2019, sixth form students participated in a limited geophysical survey of the site using resistivity techniques. The results from the survey encouraged the Group to undertake a full ground penetrating radar survey.
