The lead work on the castle roof was, until the mid 1990’s, 150 years old and deteriorating badly. The old lead was progressively removed, re-smelted and then relaid in a new more modern layout plan approved and supervised throughout by English Heritage.
The granite battlements were all refaced, repaired and/or replaced with new metal underpinning and major architectural features such as the roof gallery and laundry washing pool at the top of the square tower were completely renovated and restored. A derelict wing of the castle, known as the Rabbit Warren, and previously used as staff accommodation before the First World War, was also completely renovated as holiday let accommodation with lift access.
