Decision due on Segontium Museum's future, Caernarfon


Talks are due to be held to decide the future of a museum and Roman fort which has closed amid financial problems.

Segontium Museum in Caernarfon, Gwynedd, is shut until further notice and its board says it has suffered since many museum fees were dropped.

It relies on admission fees and grants from the town council.

Last month, it was claimed tourists could also be put off by litter allegedly caused by drunken youths gathering at the fort.

The fort is believed to have been occupied from 78 AD and was the Roman HQ for north west Wales.

Rhys Prydderch, chair of Segontium Ltd, which will decide the museum's future, has previously claimed the attraction has suffered because of the public's assumption that museum entries should be free.

Nobody from the museum was available for comment.
