Plas Kynaston has won a Wrexham Area Civic Society Award for its Architectural Conservation a year afters its completion! We travelled up to Wrexham to receive the award on the 24th November.
Plas Kynaston is grade II listed and was originally built by the Kynaston family as a family home and sits in a very significant area, as the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and canal that the Plas Kynaston produced the iron for is now a World Heritage Site. Plas Kynaston served as a library for some time during the 20th century until a new library was build in the 1970’s. As a result, a number of failed projects had left the house secure but abandoned.
The Welsh Georgian Trust approached Wrexham County Borough Council to ensure that the house had a viable future, which resulted in the construction of 6 flats being built inside the house, which was completed in November 2016.
Other winners of awards included Chirk Court Care Home, Trevalyn Hall, Glynn Valley Tramway, Wrexham Cemetery, and 71 Percy Road.
