The windfall for Hylton Castle is great news as I cannot think what would have been the outcome of this great historic building if Denny and his team had not succeeded in getting a fund to save it.
He is the heart of the project. I’m not sure if people realise that it was only through his determination that we got the dean revamped and the pond (lake) put back close to the original dean pond a few year back.
It was also down to his devotion to the castle project that we got a time team here.
We know it didn’t happened single handedly, perhaps when this work begins we might even have a visit or two from the cauld lad himself ...
I’m sure the castle and surrounding area still has some secrets to reveal to us.
