DEVEOPMENT NEWS. A meeting took place between Gwalia and members of NPT CBC on Thursday, 21st February 2013, and it was established that Caewern House would continue to be a respite care centre under the wing of Gwalia. A study is being arranged to ensure that the proposed plans satisfy NPT CBC.
According to historian Keith Reed, Caewern House was built in 1860 by the Redwood family who were in the tanning trade, having business premises near Neath river bridge.
During World War II the MOD took the building over and the story goes that there was a control room in the basement. When the basement was examined a bricked up doorway was found. We wonder if there are any war time secrets behind it?
