Work begins on restoration of Blaenau Gwent’s heritage landmark Bedwellty House

The £5.5million restoration of Tredegar’s Bedwellty House and Park – one of Blaenau Gwent’s most famous heritage centres – is underway.

Contractors appointed by Blaenau Gwent Council have started work under the main contract. Work is expected for completion in Spring 2011.

The building is being restored by Blaenau Gwent Council and a partnership including The Heritage Lottery Fund, the Welsh Assembly Government’s Heads of the Valleys Programme, the European Regional Development Fund and CADW.

Bedwellty House and Park is set to be a major visitor attraction in the Heads of the Valleys.

Restoration work includes a café restaurant, new entrance and courtyard, offices, full disabled access, kitchen garden and a servery, bar and store.
