To mark the 25th anniversary, the Friends presented the North Tower, with its spire, in the proper light, thanks to newly installed lighting.

In 2007 the spire of the North Tower, which had adorned the silhouette of Moyland Castle until 1945, was rebuilt. The support of many, and especially the pre-financing offered by the Society of Friends, made the reconstruction possible.

The refurbishment allows an optimal presentation of the works of art while providing the exhibition rooms with a clear structure and drawing the viewer’s attention to the essentials.

Many thanks to the Society’s members, whose annual membership fees and contributions have made a substantial contribution to the castle’s remodelling.
