Urgent conservation and repair works to Castell Coch’s Gallery roof are underway — but the popular site remains open to visitors and continues to host functions as normal.

The contract to repair Castell Coch’s Gallery roof commenced on 16 September 2013 and it is expected that work will be completed on 20 December 2013.

During this 14-week period an appointed roofing contractor will be replacing damaged ridge and roof tiles, and repairing timbers and lead-lined guttering.

To provide a safe and weatherproof working environment for the contractor, the Gallery roof will be covered by sheeting and scaffolding throughout the period.

Part of the internal courtyard area directly below the Gallery will also be cordoned off for safety reasons, and to ensure that the contractor has access and an area for material storage.
