History pages go live

Our new history pages will go live on the evening of August 21st

They set out the historical information we are collecting about Llanfrechfa Grange and its gardens, especially the Walled Garden.  Gathered from historical records and from stories told by people who have known the Grange over the years our aim is to understand the estates history so that it can inform the future of the Walled Garden as we progress with its restoration.

We hope you enjoy reading these pages, which will continue to develop as we sift through information we already have and more is found.

If you have anything to add please do get in touch.

Next Event 21st August 2015 – Llanfrechfa Grange: Past, Present and Future

Our next event is being held in association with the Oxford House Industrial History Society. Read on for details.
