Welsh council urges organisations to take over heritage sites

Anglesey County Council has warned that three of its heritage sites are at risk of closure unless someone takes them over.

The council is looking for organisations to take over the running of a Victorian prison, Wales’ only working windmill and one of Britain’s oldest court houses.

Anglesey’s head of learning, Delyth Molyneux, said: ‘The county council is eager to work with partners to investigate new ways of delivering an exciting, engaging visitor experience at all three sites. Our aim is to safeguard the future of these sites, and protect the Island’s culture and heritage.

‘However, given the significant financial pressures faced and the fact that these sites don’t form part of a statutory service, there’s a real possibility that they will have to be mothballed or closed altogether if no one else can be found to run them.’

All three sites - Beaumaris Courthouse, Beaumaris Goal and Melin Llynnon and Roundhouses - are currently managed by the council’s museums and culture service. The council is seeking proposals from interested parties by 11th November 2016.
