Lifting the lid on Tredegar House

The Victorian front at Tredegar House

We're embarking on a programme of conservation projects to safeguard the future of our beloved 17th-century mansion house and its surrounding gardens and parkland for generations to come.

Lifting the Lid will see the repair and redevelopment of a number of areas of the property including the mansion house roof, chimneys and windows, with possible developments to the glasshouses and bothies and the stable block among many other areas. 

Our first project in this extensive programme will see repairs being made to the slate roof to ensure it remains watertight and to ensure our house and collection are not damaged by water or humidity. Work will begin on site from mid-September 2016 with a projected completion date of Autumn 2017.
