Since 1999, the various organisations that have an involvement in the Llanymynech Heritage Area have come together under the umbrella organisation of the Llanymynech Heritage Partnership. Through this joint working and sharing of knowledge and projects, steady coordinated progress has been made over the years. That is not to say that nothing was done before 1999, but certainly, there has been an increased pace and holistic sense of purpose to the restoration, interpretation and preservation of the whole area. The Llanymynech Heritage Partnership is made up of representatives from the following organisations:
