The main funder for the major project was the Heritage Lottery Fund; English Heritage also made a significant contribution and both organisations provided invaluable expertise and advice; support also came from a variety of local, national and European sources. Since the preparatory stage, local enterprises have been generous with sponsorship and donations in cash or in kind. (For more information on funding, please contact Tom Baker, details below).
Admission and illustrated leaflet are FREE. Now that the major funding has ceased, the Trust will need to raise an estimated £3000 annually from grants and donations to cover the costs of maintenance and insurance. Trustees and members provide their services and support free. The Trust is grateful for their continuing support and for that of all Hopton Castle's friends in the area and beyond.
There is more to be done: for more on this and on funding see 'How we got there' in the NEWS section.
