We are working for an accessible and well-protected historic environment for Wales ... The Historic Environment is all around us and enhances quality of life and adds local distinctiveness. It includes: * historic buildings; *ancient monuments, such as castles, abbeys, standing stones and industrial remains; *shipwreck sites; *archaeological sites; *historic parks, gardens and landscapes; *World Heritage Sites.'

'The Society exists to promote and encourage the study, preservation and documentation of costume and textiles in the region of Wales and the Marches, and to further research into these subjects, by means of meetings, lectures, exhibitions, visits to collections, publication of articles, exchange of information, and to organise activities to encourage the aims of the Society.'
