Regency Restoration Project

The first stage of a £6.7 million plan to restore the Garden’s historic Regency landscape began in January 2015

The scheme includes major archaeological work which will reveal the secrets of the estate from the time of Shakespeare and before, and see the restoration of the later Regency landscape that was one of the finest water parks in Britain. When completed, the Garden will once more feature the necklace of seven lakes, cascades, falls and weirs created more than 200 years ago and again boast the Regency planting scheme that formed the heart of its parkland.

This project will rejuvenate the landscape for visitors to enjoy and will tell the story of more than 250 years of East India Company influence that shaped the landscape of this part of Wales.
