Higham Ferrers Town Council, supported by Higham Ferrers Tourism, Business and Community Partnership, successfully achieved Heritage Lottery Funding to restore and safely house the five Royal Charters and set of Byelaws.
A Charter is a document recording the granting of rights and privileges often given by a monarch or a baron. There was a total of seven Charters, of which only the last five are remaining in Higham Ferrers.
