* Snow will keep Plas Newydd closed over Easter.
Plas Newydd in Llangollen, home of ‘The Ladies’ will now be closed to the public during the Easter weekend.
Originally due to open on Good Friday, recent severe weather conditions have caused serious damage to trees and property on the site and despite the efforts of contractors, staff and volunteers it is currently unsafe to receive public visits.
Manager Sam Williams said ‘Llangollen was severely hit by the recent harsh weather conditions and although things are gradually returning to normal in the town we have had to take the decision to remain closed at Plas Newydd this weekend. A large number of damaged trees are still classified as unsafe and contractors have been unable to reach many of them in the snow.
We have work ongoing to clear the site and make it safe and we intend to open to the public in a weeks’ time.
The house, gardens and tea rooms will re-open on Friday April 5th, 10am – 5pm and remain open 6 days a week (closed Tuesdays) until the end of September.
Our other properties Nantclwyd Y Dre in Ruthin and Ruthin Gaol will open as usual on Good Friday and we have a family egg-hunt taking place at Nantclwyd Y Dre on Easter Saturday
