Historical Event, Mon 23 Jul - Sun 2 Sep 2018

Tretower Court

Tretower Court


It’s miles inland – but come and discover Tretower’s links with water!

It’s the Year of the Sea – where the water from the air and from the land comes back together. It’s in us, around us, and we can’t live without it…. This summer, visit Tretower to discover the Court’s relationship with the Source of Life; how the 'Place of Water' became the 'Place of the Tower', the history of the Vaughan family, and how a wrecker wrought his own doom!
