Grade I-listed Llanelly House restored after 10 years

5 November 2013 Last updated at 20:14 GMT

Grade I-listed Llanelly House in Llanelli has been restored 10 years after work began to bring the derelict Georgian building back to life.

Built in 1714 by Thomas Stepney, MP for Carmarthenshire, the house was constructed on the site of their previous family home, and at the time was an example of fashionable architectural design: a Roman-style dwelling.

The £6m project has taken longer than expected and was £1m over budget but is finally open to visitors.

Abigail Neal reports.
