Kevin McCloud's Castleford regeneration: the story behind the television series

  • Comment
‘There does not seem to be a single building in Castleford town centre which would justify a mention,’ said Nikolaus Pevsner in 1959. Nearly 50 years later that description still rings horribly true.

Now the deprived West Yorkshire former mining town, south east of Leeds, is to be the ‘star’ in its own Channel 4 programme. The Castleford Project – screening over four weeks from mid-August – is the subject of a show about the town’s regeneration to be hosted by Grand Designs frontman Kevin McCloud.
