A £1 million conservation project at Llancaiach Fawr Manor in Nelson, which has been funded from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Cadw and Caerphilly County Borough Council has been completed.

The Manor's servants quarters in the attics are being opened up for the first time. The improvements are aimed at offering visitors a complete picture of the household in 1645.

The fortified Manor was built in 1530 for Dafydd ap Richard and is said to be one of the finest examples of its type.
