The descendant of one of the most eminent owners of Castle Green House made a visit to Cardigan Castle.
For nearly a century during the Victorian period, the Davies family owned Cardigan Castle, with Castle Green House being the commercial and social lynchpin for the town.
Patriarch David Davies was a high sheriff of Cardiganshire and played a pivotal role in the rise of Cardigan as a sea port.
His great great great great granddaughter, Sherry Husselbury, who now lives in Surrey, visited the castle for the first time since its £12m restoration.
Staying on site in one of the luxury accommodation units, she was thrilled to see the castle restored and brought back to life.
“This really is a tremendous achievement,” she said. “As a family we have always retained an interest in Castle Green and followed the restoration process closely.”
She was especially pleased at the castle winning the Channel 4 Restoration of the Year a few months ago.
“We were glued to our TV screens and cheered when it was announced the castle was the winner,” she said. “I am sure David Davies would be very pleased!”
