Segontium Museum closes for summer amid Cadw takeover

Welsh heritage body Cadw will take over the management of the Segontium Museum and Roman fort in Caernarfon, Gwynedd.

The financially-troubled museum will remain closed this summer, although the external areas of the fort will continue to be open to the public. Cadw will take over from from Segontium Cyf, a company run by local people.

The museum would be "better served under the direction of a statutory body," a meeting of the managing company decided. The unanimous decision was passed by a meeting of the board.
