A hotel in Tredegar that has been derelict for 10 years is to be given a transformation after the project received a funding boost from the local heritage initiative scheme.
The Tredegar Arms on Morgan Street, which has fallen into disrepair since it closed its doors in 2006, is to be completely refurbished before reopening as a ‘high quality venue’.
The project has been awarded a funding injection due to its historic status after being constructed out of the town’s growth from the iron industry.
Money donated from the Tredegar Townscape Heritage Initiative Scheme will help the owners to renovate the outside of the building, as well as create a new restaurant, hotel and function suite.
The idea is to design the building to ‘appear and function as it was originally designed’.
The application said there will be a new slate roof, lime rendering and timber sash windows along with an entrance canopy, which was originally part of the building but removed during past work.
The project has been funded by various organisations, including the owners, with the THI grant contributions being made up from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Welsh Government’s VVP Tackling Poverty Programme, Cadw and the council.
