Grant to make Llancaiach Fawr Manor 'accessible to all'

Llancaiach Fawr employees say a £943,200 grant awarded to the manor will be used to help tell 'a complete story of the all the people who lived and worked there' and make the site accessible for all visitors.

With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, not only will we will be able to show the difference between the living conditions of the servants, as well as the gentry owners, for the first time, but we will also be able to open up the vast majority of the building to visitors with mobility difficulties who have formerly only been able to access the ground floor.

– Diane Walker, General Manager of Llancaiach Fawr Manor
