The current logo of Cadw.

Cadw (English: to keep) is a Welsh-government body with the mission to protect, conserve, and to promote the built heritage of Wales. It is the Welsh equivalent of English Heritage and Historic Scotland and is now part of the Welsh Assembly Government. Many of Wales’ great castles, and other monuments such as bishop’s palaces, historic houses, and ruined abbeys, are now in Cadw’s care. Cadw does not own them, but is responsible for their upkeep and for making them accessible to the public. Cadw is also responsible for “listing”[1] and ensuring the preservation of historic buildings and archaeological sites.

The organization, whose full name is Cadw: Welsh Historic Monuments, was created in 1984; its headquarters are in Nantgarw, just north of Cardiff. Since the 1998 creation of the National Assembly for Wales, Cadw has been part of the devolved government of Wales, the Welsh Assembly Government.
