The renovation work got underway in the spring of 2012 with the re-roofing of Saint Mary’s Church. This was work was paid for with grants from the Llŷn AONB, Nefyn Town Trust and CADW.
In the spring of 2013, a new disabled ramp was built. It was funded through a CADW Our Heritage grant and financial support from the Cronfa Tir a Môr landfill fund. The ramp was designed to resemble the rails aboard a ship’s deck.
In September 2013, the construction company started work in the museum itself. This included a programme of insulation, the laying of a granite floor and path towards the gate, installing an office and kitchen , putting in new windows and repointing work on the church and tower. The project was funded through a package of grants including the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Welsh Government Community Facilities and Activity Programme.
During the renovation work, some underpinning work was done in order to stabilise the walls and roof, and this was when the cist grave and skeleton were unearthed, in November 2013.
