Project Director, Cyfarthfa Foundation - heritage, environment, creativity all in one and at scale

The Cyfarthfa Foundation has been established to take forward an ambitious plan to transform Cyfarthfa Castle - a museum and gallery - and 100ha of surrounding parkland into a cultural centre and visitor attraction of national significance in Merthyr Tydfil in south Wales. Cyfarthfa and other ironworks in the town made it a crucible of the industrial revolution in the 19th century.

A consultant team led by Ian Ritchie Architects completed The Cyfarthfa Plan - a masterplan for the project - in December 2020. This has received widespread endorsement both locally and nationally. It sets out a compelling vision for the implementation of a large number of projects across the 100ha park over a 20-year planning period under three themes: history and heritage, the natural environment and creativity. Together they are also intended to generate social renewal in the area.

The plan proposes a diverse range of projects within the 100ha Cyfarthfa Park including: major landscape enhancement and infrastructure proposals; works to stabilise and secure the 266-year old Cyfarthfa Iron furnaces, a scheduled ancient monument; extensive works to conserve and repurpose the Grade I listed Cyfarthfa Castle as an international quality museum; conservation and repurposing of a number of other historic buildings and structures across Cyfarthfa Park; the construction of new buildings and visitor attractions.
