Heritage Funding Success!!

Swansea Council and Swansea University have been successful in an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the next phase of the development at Hafod-Morfa Copperworks .

Plans to renovate the former Hafod Morfa Copperworks site could see Penderyn Distillery expand its business into Swansea.

The partnership has been given a first-round pass by the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant of £3.75m and will shortly receive a £189,600 development grant to progress the plans, which could see Penderyn build a new distillery and visitor centre at the former copperworks site.
