The Naseby Battlefield Project was set up in 2001. Funds were raised for the refurbishment of existing sites such as the Cromwell Monument and the Obelisk Monument close to Sibbertoft and Naseby respectively and their integration into the Naseby Battlefield Tour with further viewpoints, interpretation panels, walks and parking facilities. In May 2007 a charitable company was established.
The Naseby Battlefield Project aims:
The First Stage: (Now Complete)
An extensive Battlefield Trail with the installation of 12 viewing points with colourful interpretation boards at key locations.
The Second Stage:
We have entered into a joint project with Naseby church whereby we will turn part of it into a visitor centre/museum. This has the support of the village and the Church of England. Jointly we will provide toilets, better heating, parking and kitchen facilities. Plans are ongoing and we are about to embark on the grant application with the Heritage Lottery Fund.
