Since August 30th '99, Tonbridge Castle Gatehouse was closed to everybody. The Millennium project had began, costing £375,000!!!!!!!
Basically, the Millennium Scheme is a project to do a complete overhaul of the castle. Missing floors and the first level floors will be replaced. The spiral staircase in the east tower will be replaced. Also, two additional rooms will be created. For the local school trips, an educational room will be added for children and their teachers to learn more about the castle.
Hopefully by September in the year 2000, the castle will be completed and the gatehouse should be open. Ready for the big celebration, of the new millennium.
