As the BBC's Restoration series continues, other ageing monuments are obtaining conservation cash from more conventional sources.

Consultant Gifford has been appointed by City & County of Swansea and Welsh Assembly conservation department Cadw to develop a programme of repairs to the historic Oystermouth Castle in Mumbles, south Wales. Parts of the castle date back to periods between the 11th and 14th century, but it was abandoned in the 17th century after the civil war. Since then it has fallen into disrepair and some sections of wall are structurally unsafe. Work is expected to start on site in the autumn.
