Historic opportunity for dogs in Wales (Thanks to Cadw for the following information.)

Did you know…?

Gelert, the legendary hound of Llywelyn ap Iorwerth, is credited with giving Beddgelert (Gelert’s grave) in Snowdonia its name.

One of the six crests – the one representing Wales – borne by Richard III, depicts a golden cradle and a silver greyhound.

Possibly the most famous Welsh terrier in the world was Charlie, President John F Kennedy’s loyal dog.

As a nation, Wales is passionate about its history. It also has a soft spot for dogs and from 1 April 2009, Cadw, the Welsh Assembly Government’s historic environment service, will welcome dogs on leads at a number of its historic sites across Wales.

Initially, seventeen sites have been chosen, to include, Blaenavon Ironworks, Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre, Caerphilly Castle, Raglan Castle and Caerwent Roman Town in south-east Wales; Oxwich Castle, Cilgerran Castle, Lamphey Bishop’s Palace and St Davids Bishop’s Palace in south-west Wales; Strata Florida Abbey in mid-Wales; Denbigh Castle, Basingwerk Abbey, Ewloe Castle, Rhuddlan Castle, and Valle Crucis Abbey in north-east Wales and Castell y Bere and Dolbadarn Castle in north-west Wales.

Before setting off on a heritage-packed day trip with a dog it is advised to first check Cadw’s website  and look out for the words ‘dogs welcome’ next to the site to be visited. Assistance dogs and their owners have access to all Cadw monuments without restriction. However, some areas such as spiral staircases, castle ramparts and exhibition areas will be out of bounds for the safety of four and two-legged visitors.

Clarissa Baldwin, Chief Executive of Dogs Trust, added, ‘Dogs Trust is delighted by the introduction of seventeen dog-friendly Cadw sites around the country.

‘This is fantastic news for our supporters and for all dog owners, who will now be able to enjoy Cadw’s wonderful heritage attractions along with their four-legged friends. We look forward to even more Cadw attractions opening their doors to dogs in the future.’
