""Cadwgan Building Preservation Trust, a Company Limited by Guarantee and a Registered Charity, is working very hard in partnership with Ceredigion County Council to save Cardigan Castle and associated buildings on its 2 acre site.
The Trust has now secured £4.5m from the Heritage Lottery Fund and a further £4.7m from WEFO towards the £11m project. We are also working towards a Communities Asset Transfer grant and hope to have all the funding in place by the summer.
Andrew Scott Limited were awarded the Cardigan Wall Repairs Contract in June 2012, which is part of the overall scheme to save Cardigan Castle.
The site is located on the boundary of a parcel of land known as Cardigan Castle, situated in the town of Cardigan.
