Construction work is now well under way at the site in Penllergaer. Penllergare Valley Woods is a highly significant Victorian designed landscape located on the edge of Swansea. The Valley constitutes what remains of the unique picturesque landscape created by the Llewelyn family, notably John Dillwyn Llewelyn (1810-82), which exploited the natural topography on a grand scale. The landscape has survived, albeit in a severely neglected state, and today it is a popular green space for quiet recreation and enjoyment by local people. It is slowly being brought back into management by a group of volunteers, trainees and Penllergare Trust staff with funding from WEFO and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The restoration project includes a number of measures to improve the accessibility of Penllergare Valley Woods for visitors, and to enhance their understanding and enjoyment of its heritage. These include the creation of a small woodland car park and the construction of a new, split-level information kiosk with toilets, together with a small meeting space for trainees, volunteers and other community groups.
