Striking wall paper, showing colourful birds and blossom, is being re-created for one of the conference rooms in Cardigan Castle’s Regency Mansion.
The paper has been carefully copied to match the original hand-painted paper which has survived from one of the rooms. Experts have been working to match the colours to the original paper, and the end result is beautiful.
This reproduction paper, with its delightful images of birds and blossom, will be on the walls in one of the old bedrooms upstairs in the Regency house, which is now going to be a conference training room.
The Regency House is being re-developed as part of the Castle project. When it opens in 2014, there will be different exhibitions in the rooms of the house, bringing alive to visitors the many periods in the Castle’s history.
The displays in the house will tell the tale of the Castle’s exciting history over different periods of time, the historical role of Cardigan town and the stories of the characters that have been involved at the Castle site.
