Gwydir Castle hit by more flooding as money runs out to build defences


The owners of Gwydir Castle are wearily used to winter storms wreaking havoc at their Grade I listed grounds – but they can’t ever remember it happening in July.
Judy Corbett said that the water "came from nowhere" over the weekend to swamp the gardens and cellar at the site in Llanrwst
A 400m sandbag wall has been constructed by volunteers in an effort to protect the building, and although the £60,000 wall held up magnificently the water still managed to find its way in.
Judy admits she’s at a loss as to what to do.
Judy and her partner, Peter Welford have lost all the revenue they would have made through charging visitors entry to the castle.
This year, they were hoping to welcome 25 groups- mostly Americans, from cruise ships that dock in Holyhead but every single visit has been cancelled.
Every penny they would have made would have gone towards the continued renovation of the castle and flood defences. They still need around £40,000 to complete the sandbank wall.
