Lottery cash to restore town park
A town centre park which houses a 12th Century castle is to be restored thanks to a 49,000 Heritage Lottery grant.

Queen Elizabeth Park in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, will also get another 10,000 from the council and other organisations.

Work to improve the park could see a new footbridge built over the Lyme Brook, a history room created in the pavilion and a children's play area.

The council will consult with residents before drawing up more detailed plans.
