Cluster of Collections
Our teams in Wales certainly have their hands full showcasing our great collections.
This year we're taking a new approach on how we display these treasures at Erddig and Llanerchaeron.
Erddig is home to the second largest collection in the National Trust, so it’s little wonder that we keep finding objects tucked away in store rooms. Similarly, Llanerchaeron in Ceredigion has an impressive collection of more than 5,000 objects.
Powis Castle's mystery table
Battle won at The Kymin's Naval Temple
The Naval Temple at The Kymin, near Monmouth in South-East Wales, is the only memorial in existence that celebrates an entire navy.
One of our specialist teams recently completed the restoration to return the Naval Temple to its early 19th-century appearance. It took more than a year to complete in 2011 and 2012.
The Ty Mawr Bible
Tucked away in a valley on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park sits the modest, but historic farm house of Ty Mawr Wybrnant (near Penmachno).
It is the birthplace of Bishop William Morgan (c.1545-1604), the man who translated the Bible into Welsh.
Today, we continue to celebrate William Morgan’s achievements at his birthplace.
Chirk Castle's Red Hand of history
A rare document detailing centuries of family history dating back to circa 1660 is now on public display at Chirk Castle, near Wrexham in North-East Wales.
For the first time you can see the Myddelton Pedigree, a document dating back to the mid-17th century that maps the ancestry of the family through the lines of Welsh princes and rulers of ancient Britain.
