About Us

Ruthin Castle Conservation Trust

On the 3rd March 2016, Ruthin Castle Conservation Trust was registered  under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 and was registered with the Financial Conduct Authority. A formal application to HMRC for exempt charity status is now pending.

Conceptual plans have already been created as a first stage towards separating the commercial hotel and establishing the ancient castle and gardens as a visitor attraction in its own right. One of the key objectives will be to raise the public perception of the 13th century castle to give it the clear identity that it deserves. Other key objectives are to engage the local community and educational groups

Ruthin Castle as it exists now was constructed from 1287 as part of King Edward I’s ‘Iron Ring’, which includes Caernarfon, Conwy, Beaumaris and Harlech castles, 4 of which have been given World Heritage status. The significance of ancient Ruthin Castle has long been under-stated and for many their mis-perception is that of the 19th century castle-mansion hotel that shares the site.

Through a number of initiatives the charitable Trust aims to achieve the sustainable conservation of the ancient castle and give support to efforts towards the conservation of the castle-mansion and gardens and is seeking funding from a number of public and private organizations as well as voluntary donations from guests and interested parties.

Those interested in becoming a member or any other aspect can initially contact the Trust here.
