  Bolingbroke Castle Moat Restoration Project   (Current Project)
Heritage Lincolnshire has received grant funding to restore parts of the moat at Bolingbroke Castle, Old Bolingbroke. The castle is a Scheduled Monument and is of national importance because it is a prime example of innovative 13th century castle design and because it was the birthplace in 1366 of the future King Henry IV of England. It is also a Site of Nature Conservation Importance.

There is a growing recognition of the great importance of Limewoods. Local organisations, including the Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire have formed a partnership with long term commitment to invest in and improve the woods.

A Renaissance East Midlands funded project to produce a series of new electronic interpretation and education resources linked to Lincolnshire's rich historic environment and museum collections.
