It is thanks to The Cadwgan Building Preservation Trust, its loyal volunteers and support from funders that Cardigan Castle is here today.
The Trust was formed in 1999 by four committed local volunteers; Jann Tucker, the late Gareth Davies, the late Trevor Griffiths and Richard Thomas. Their aim was to save two 300-year old cottages in the centre of Cardigan, by the entrance to the historic Cardigan Castle. These cottages were fully restored and then The Trust, in partnership with Ceredigion County Council, set their sights on restoring the two-acre castle site to its former glory.
The Trust would like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, Communities Asset Transfer, Cadw, Big Lottery Fund, The UK Association of Preservation Trusts, The Architectural Heritage Fund, Ceredigion County Council, Cardigan Town Council and The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, for their invaluable support.
