Insole Court has been awarded over £300,000 to protect and preserve our nationally important heritage site for future generations. This crucial support is from the National Heritage Memorial Fund as part of its Covid-19 Response Fund for heritage sites impacted by the pandemic. The money awarded will contribute towards essential external maintenance of the mansion house as well as funding repairs and development of the historic interiors.

Lloyd Glanville, CEO of Insole Court, said: “This funding from the National Heritage Memorial Fund provides vital support for the essential work needed to protect Insole Court. The disruption of the global pandemic risked years of progress safeguarding an important part of Cardiff’s cultural heritage. This grant not only helps us overcome the challenge but allows us to continue our development, welcoming new visitors and serving as a valued community hub.”

The National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) was set up in 1980 to save the most outstanding parts of our national heritage, in memory of those who have given their lives for the UK. NHMF receives annual grant-in-aid of £5million from the UK government to help save some of our most-loved treasures such as paintings, natural heritage, maritime and industrial vessels, and historic houses, from being lost forever. Any funds remaining from NHMF’s annual allocation at the end of the financial year remain available to NHMF to award grants to exceptional heritage treasures such as the Portrait of Mai (Omai), The Artist Rooms, Titian’s Diana and Acteon, the Honresfield Library, Tyntesfield Estate and Wentworth Woodhouse.
