Announcing the 1072 Club

Durham Castle was built in 1072 under the reign of William the Conqueror. Since then the Castle has become much more than a defensive fortress; it has played the role of Palace, and now College. The 1072 Club is a celebration of this rich history and tradition, a reminder that all Castlemen have been part of a truly unique experience and one that they can relive through joining The 1072 Club.
