Hay Castle restoration project starts on site

Work has started on site on our restoration project at Hay Castle in Hay on Wye, Powys. The project conserves the historic gatehouse, keep and mansion in addition to the creation of new exhibition, education and visitor facilities across the 10,000sq/m site.

The £4.5m HLF funded project will create a culturally and economically vibrant centre for the arts and training at the heart of this historic town. The design intends to rescue and conserve the critically at-risk medieval keep and the Jacobean mansion, restore and open the ancient gate - the oldest of its kind in the UK, and reinstate the vital connection between the castle and the town. A museum-standard gallery will host touring exhibitions from major collections, a platform high in the castle keep will offer stunning and historic views out from this ancient monument, and a characterful learning space will engage the young and old alike, allowing all the chance to enjoy, love and cherish this iconic castle.

The project is due for completion in early 2020 in time for the annual Hay Festival.
