A project to build a visitors’ centre, costing more than £1m, for the site of one of most key battles in English history has won a lottery grant.
Naseby Battlefield Project (NBP) wants to build the centre at the Northamptonshire site of the decisive battle of the English Civil War.
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has given the group £9,900 to pay for a feasibility study and consultation.
NBP will then apply for a grant to build the centre.
The battle took place on 14 June 1645, when the army of parliament destroyed the King’s army in fields just outside the village of Naseby.
