Cardigan Castle renovation takes 'big step forward'

An eleven million pound project to renovate Cardigan Castle took a big step forward today. Work began to remove metal structures which have held the castle walls up for almost four decades.

For many locals they've been an eyesore on the 900-year-old site which was the birthplace of the Eisteddfod. The aim is to turn the castle into a community and education centre.

Cardigan Castle work begins

Work to remove the first of the stanchions supporting Cardigan Castle has begun. They were erected in 1975 as a temporary support for the wall but have stayed in place since then.
