Join us for the latest outing of the popular Conservation Coach, offering visits to three distinctive medieval conservation projects in South Wales. Each site tells a fascinating story of the rehabilitation of a historic building at different stages of rescue and restoration.
With specialist speakers and the chance to meet the architects or conservators of these special properties, the day is aimed at anyone with a professional or personal interest in the conservation of historic buildings.
From our pick-up point outside the Welsh School of Architecture in Cathays Park we will revisit a 2016 project, Llwyn Celyn at Llanvihangel Crucorney. This Grade I Listed medieval hall house is in the process of being transformed by The Landmark Trust into a holiday rental home, with an educational and community facility housed in the threshing barn.
After a light lunch at The Chapel in Abergavenny we travel to St Fagans for a talk and glimpse of Llys Llywelyn, a recreation of a 13th century Royal Court, based on archeological remains discovered on Anglesey.
Our final stop is Llancarfan, to view the medieval wall paintings recently uncovered in Grade I listed St Cadoc’s Church. Our study tour ends with a round-up discussion at the Fox and Hounds country pub just next door. We will travel back to Cardiff with an estimated arrival time of 6.30pm at the Welsh School of Architecture.
