What will 2015 bring for Ruperra castle

Apologies for the lack of news since September. In fact there is very little.

In July we heard that a new person had bought the 13 acte Ruperra site with all its buildings. Most of the old companies who had owned the buildings since 1998 had become insolvent anyway.

The problem of the neglect and consequent dereliction of the outbuildings and castle still remains however.

In July John Griffiths AM met some Ruperra Castle Preservation Trust directors and advisers. He said that he recognised the immense importance of the place of Ruperra in the heritage of Wales, but that help with funding was impossible. He then instructed Cadw to make officers available to report on the condition of the buildings.

The photography for the report was carried out in September last year and we are waiting for the results.

The report will be in the public domain and we will post it here.
