Join Sustrans Cymru on Thursday 18th April at 13.30pm to celebrate the launch of our impressive new land artwork in Maesteg.
Spanning over a hectare of reclaimed land, which was once the site of the old Maesteg Washery, artist Jony Easterby has transformed the space into an attractive environmental land art piece featuring a wetlands area, a walkway, a stone wall feature, and a variety of trees and plants all set against a stunning Valleys backdrop.
The site will become a living laboratory in which visitors and students will discover and learn.
The scenic Llynfi Valley Route has also been extended by an additional 3km, winding through Caerau and Croeserw along a lovely traffic-free path. It now joins up with the picturesque 9-mile Afan Valley route through the Afan Forest, providing fantastic opportunities for tourism in the area.
The artwork and new route have both been funded with support from the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government as part of the Valleys Regional Park partnership, and form part of Sustrans’ exciting Valleys Cycle Network project.
Please join us at the school reception at 1.30pm from where we will walk to the artwork for the opening ceremony, followed by a buffet and refreshments at the school. Everyone will have a chance to contribute to the future aesthetics of the artwork by scattering wildflower seeds.
If you are travelling by car please park on the road outside the school.
