About Us

FONCNorthamptonCastle.com is a website run on behalf of the Friends of Northampton Castle (FONC)

The Friends of Northampton Castle is a small working group dedicated to making sure that the importance of our medieval heritage is recognised and celebrated.

We hear too often that our castle has been lost, that nothing remains. In fact there is a great deal of the castle left under the surface – it can be both explored and restored if we have the will to do it.

FONC is linked to the Friends of St. Peters and together we hope to bring new life to this great period in our local history. If you’re interested in joining FONC, please contact us or simply turn up at one of our open meetings, detailed on the homepage.

The more people who join us the more likely it is that local authorities and developers will co-operate in securing the future of a great past.
