After a decade of on-off negotiations, the leases of the so-called country park in Valley Woods were finally assigned to the Penllergare Trust on 26th April 2012, albeit with the burden of paying rent of £25k per year to the landowner. Even so this is a major step forward in our goal to restore and protect for public benefit the heart of the Penllergare estate. With tenure secured for over 100 years the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) immediately gave permission to start the ‘Parks for People' project.
