The charters

restored …

The original charters, now restored, are to be taken to the Northampton Record Office once the specialist hand-made storage boxes have been completed by the conservators, Museum Conservation Services.

The images below give you an idea of how wonderful the charters now look after restoration.

Each school in the town will receive a framed copy of an individual charter on loan from the Town Council.
