Action in Ely and Caerau are delighted to announce their funding success this morning with a £829m Heritage Lottery Award for their Caerau And Ely Rediscovering (CAER) Heritage Project.

The Project is a collaborative project between community development organisation ACE – Action in Caerau and Ely, Cardiff University, and local schools and residents. The project is based around one of Cardiff’s most important, but little-known, archaeological sites, Caerau Iron Age hillfort.

Following an application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, ACE will receive £829,000 for the project, to transform the area into a community-generated heritage attraction through the Hidden Hillfort Project. Cardiff University is an active partner in the project, the total cost of which exceeds £1.6m; other significant support has been given to ACE by First Campus, Wales and West Housing, Cardiff Archaeological Society and the Moondance Foundation.

More information on the project can be found here.
