What we have done and what we are doing!

We restored the Town walls and have an on-going maintenance program, planted primroses on Primrose Hill, founded the Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival, floodlit Holy Cross Church, installed a children's story-telling area by the Library, renovated the commemorative Plaque set in parapet of the former bridge originally over the River Thaw.

In the Old Hall Gardens we have repaired and painted the Façade, paved a new terrace around the pond, installed memorial benches, created a new "Dragon" garden along the South Wall, planted a range of trees, shrubs and plants to encourage biodiversity, planted thousands of bulbs, created a sensory garden and in 2016/17 & 2018 awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award who agree the gardens are a place not to be missed.

OLD GARDEN Project is the name of our next major project. It includes demolishing the old cattle market and other improvements.



The Bridge Commemorative Plaque

It was first proposed in the 2012 January Committee Meeting of the Trust to consider restoring the commemorative Plaque set in parapet of the former bridge over the River Thaw.

Now at last, that project is complete. Our thanks for the funding go to Cowbridge with Llanblethian Town Council, The Waterloo Foundation, Yorkshire BS Charitable Foundation and generous Trust Members.
