Funder: National Lottery Heritage Fund

Groundwork North Wales is leading the Clywedog Valley Partnership which is a range of organisations and community groups all with an interest in the heritage of the Clywedog Valley, running from the moors above Minera Quarry to King’s Mill just south of Wrexham city centre.

Our partnership has a vision to restore and enhance the heritage of the Clywedog Valley, to transform it into a thriving, resilient, vibrant and inclusive cultural attraction and resource; a place to experience history and nature through both quiet enjoyment and a diverse programme of events with wide appeal, benefitting people both locally and from further afield.

In early 2023, the National Lottery Heritage Fund awarded a Resilience and Recovery grant to support the first steps toward making the vision for the valley a reality. Feasibility studies have been carried out for the heritage sites and will be used to develop future large funding applications to restore the heritage attractions and provide new ways for people to learn, enjoy, and get involved.
