Scaffolders at work in Guildford Castle Grounds.

Scaffolding was this morning being put up around the ruined walls of Guildford Castle ahead of maintenance work.

Features within the Castle Grounds that will have work on them include the main surviving part of the shell keep, the wall beside the footpath that cuts through the grounds, and the ruins believed to have been the ‘king’s chamber’.

The maintenance operation will include removing unwanted foliage plus any necessary remedial work to the stone walls – many of which date back to the 12th century.

Workmen erecting the scaffolding said the work is likely to take about 10 weeks to complete.

More details to follow…

Maintenance work on the castle ruins is expected to take about ten weeks.
