A major project that started back in 2005 finally came to fruition today, as Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal officially declared the opening of Lincoln Castle and the David P J Ross Magna Carta Vault.

Master of Ceremonies was actor Colin McFarlane (The police inspector in The Dark Knight and the voice of Sparkie the Dragon in Mike the Knight.) Carole Souter, Chief Executor of The Heritage Lottery Fund was among the VIP guests (much of the £20 million cost has come from the sale of lottery tickets!)
