Heritage Cottage is Cadw's 129th property and youngest asset. It is a small nineteenth century terraced house in Cwmdare, in the heart of the south Wales valleys. It is typical of so many traditional buildings in Wales and elsewhere but unique in that it has remained almost completely unaltered inside and out since it was built in 1854.
‘When you see the damage that’s being done, you have to act’. In the end, a decision to carry out major works on one of Cadw’s most popular sites was inevitable.
In 2012 Cadw conducted excavations at the hillfort with the help of many members of the community as part of the Llanmelin Community Project.
We aimed to empower volunteers to develop and enhance new and old skills.
