Restoration of the kitchen garden, Bedwellty Park
Restoration of the kitchen garden, Bedwellty Park
The original kitchen garden supplied fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers for the house.
In the early 20th century the park opened to the public and leisure facilities took over from private needs.
The restored kitchen garden with rebuilt walls and new gates is being returned to its original use.
Bedwellty Park Restoration
A major restoration of Bedwellty Park and House was commenced in 2009.
The park was closed to the public from April 2009 through to June 2011.
The cost of 6.6 million was funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund, The Welsh Assembly Government, Cadw, Blaenau Gwent council, and European funds.
The restored facilities give visitors a flavour of what the park was like during Victorian times.
