We’re in the final stages of agreeing the leases – with the County Council for the pleasure gardens, and with the Church in Wales for the walled garden. The Trust will then be responsible for the upkeep of the grounds, although all major works involving trees and shrubs must now wait until September, the end of the bird-nesting season.
Recruiting the full-time Trust Manager is now in progress and will be followed by the Head Gardener. A temporary cabin office is planned, next to the Lodge.
The Tywi Gateway Centre
The semi-derelict storage wing of the Museum; the former Palace larder, dairy and laundry, will be repaired and converted as visitor facilities including learning, interpretation and the all-important coffee shop. This is an artist’s impression of what it will look like on completion.
You and Your Dog
Please help us to keep Bishop’s Park as an enjoyable, safe and healthy place to visit by keeping your dog on a lead at all times.
There will be a guided walk on Saturday 24 February, starting from the car-park at 2.15 pm, to explain the historical background and discuss plans for the project, including in the walled garden. We recommend stout footwear.
