Llanelly House Reopens After Ten Year Restoration Project

Following ten years of restoration, Grade I Listed building, Llanelly House, has been brought back to life.

Newport, United Kingdom, November 10, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Considered the finest early 18th century townhouse in Wales, dating back to 1714, it was originally part of a small village, located in parklands, but now stands in the centre of Llanelli; a town built around the house and parish church.

After securing £6million of funding, the Carmarthenshire Heritage Regeneration Trust undertook the restoration and conservation of the building, instructing extensive research into the history of the house and its original condition, with focuses on architecture and design.

A century of neglect left the only Grade I Listed building in Llanelli in desperate need of transformation in order to return it to its former glory.

Structural defects around the building required specialist repairs, and Protectahome’s Structural Services Department were appointed to undertake corner stitching and consolidation of the walls.

Cintec anchors were installed into the North Elevation of the building on Bridge Street, and the West Elevation on Vaughan Street at the first phase of structural repairs. Protectahome were also called back several times to carry out further property repairs over the coming months.

Now open to visitors, Llanelly House aims to become a unique Genealogy Research facility in 2014.
