We have made some changes to the site and how we operate to ensure that we keep you, our staff and our local community safe.

Changes as of Monday 14 September 2020

Face masks

Wearing a face mask is compulsory in all indoor areas.

Children under 11 and people who cannot wear face coverings for health or medical reasons are exempt. For further details visit the Welsh Government website.

Groups of six

Only a maximum of six people from an extended household (also known as a bubble) are able to meet indoors at any one time. Children under 11 are not counted in the six.

Please respect these law changes when visiting our indoor areas. Thank you for your co-operation.

Mobility scooter and Access

Due to essential maintenance work on the main path to the hill fort we will not be able to offer the services of the mobility scooter until further notice. As the alternative footpath has a number of steps, wheelchairs and pushchairs will not be able to access the site during this time. We apologise for this temporary inconvenience.
