The project has been achieved by working in partnership with a number of local and national bodies including Llanelli Town Council and Carmarthenshire County Council.  Principle funders have included the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Welsh European Funding Office and Welsh Government through a number of different grant opportunities and private donations.

Built in 1714, Llanelly House is the only Grade I listed building in the town of Llanelli. The project began with the 2003 BBC ‘Restoration’ series, in which the building was a finalist championed by Laurence Llewelyn Bowen. The reopening 10 years later was a triumph of community, archaeology, history, culture, building skills and faith in Llanelli’s heritage.
