Following a partial collapse of the walls in 2008, the Council awarded a £60,000 grant to CCT to restore the Medieval-era wall back to a safe and attractive condition.


Since the award of the initial grant funding, successive grants have been made to ensure ongoing repair and maintenance works to the Grade II listed Town Walls.


Now, the Vale of Glamorgan Council has agreed to extend funding from April 1 2024 until March 31 2029. CCT will receive £1,500 per year from the Corporate Grants Budget to help with the cost of the specialist repair work the Town Walls require.


Cllr Bronwen BrooksCllr Bronwen Brooks, Deputy Leader of the Vale of Glamorgan Council and Cabinet Member for Sustainable Places, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide this funding to keep Cowbridge Town Walls both safe and in an attractive condition.


“Cowbridge Charter Trust has worked hard to maintain the Town Walls for many years with the help of Council funding, and we hope that the commitment to further funding will assist with the necessary work needed.


“The Town Walls are such an important part of Cowbridge’s rich history, and it is our duty to protect that history for future generations too.”
