A key attraction in Bwlch Nant yr Arian is the Elenydd Trail, which combines poetry, sculpture and storytelling to share welsh myths, legends and folktales that bring the landscape to life. A series of sculptures created by Dan Lock are situated at different points of the trail which are accompanied with the voice of “Elenydd” who represents the landscape and recounts some of the folktales that are known around the area.

Bwlch Nant yr Arian Sculpture by Dan Lock Heritage Interpretation

As part of the outdoor trail five of our UTR Oversized Through Panels were supplied when Dan Lock got in touch with us looking for outdoor interpretation for the project. As our U-Turn Round units are able to work with no mains power, they were able to lend itself perfectly to the Elenydd trail project. With the Oversized panel version of the U-Turn, it can be installed onto any accompanying panel making the possibilities for outdoor audio endless. They have each been situated by the five sculptures that Dan Lock created himself, complete with accompanying audio content for the specific story ranging from the ‘Knockers’ of Cwmsymlog to tales of the Maginogion and George Borrow’s account of Mid Wales when he in his own words, “went up a hill and came down a mountain.”
