Heritage Lottery Restoration

Pontypool Park was successful in obtaining grant aid from the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore specific historical areas and features of the Park.

The project areas include:

  • Replacement of lighting along main routes with a 'robust' but sympathetic style
  • Improvement and upgrading of paths with a gravel type finish to 'lose' the urban feel of black tarmac
  • Full survey of the veteran trees and associated remedial works
  • Refurbishment of the Pontymoile Gates and outer area
  • Restoration of the double icehouses
  • Restoration of the Italian Gardens
  • Rebuilding of the stone boundary walls
  • Installation of notice boards and finger posts
  • Refurbishment of the fencing around the Shell Grotto
  • Grassland management and ecology
  • Refurbishment and relocation of the School Gates
