BBC News Wales reports yesterday on a new bill to protect monuments in the country –
The Historic Environment (Wales) Bill will give ministers powers to make owners who damage monuments undertake repairs. It comes after 119 cases of damage to sites between 2006 and 2012 resulted in only one successful prosecution. In 2013, a stretch of the 1,200-year-old Offa’s Dyke, on privately owned land between Chirk and Llangollen, was found flattened.
