Making Aberdulais more exciting

Published : Fri 19th Oct Author : National Trust

A new sculpture charts the rich industrial past at Aberdulais Tinworks and Waterfall Wales
The spectacular artwork, cast in metal has just been installed. The six-metre iron creation has been built by Gideon Petersen, and takes the form of a timeline from the end of the last ice age, when the Dulais waterfall was formed, to the present day.

Each chapter of the fall's history is illustrated in an original way in both words and images linked by a sinuous ribbon of metal representing both time and the water that flows over the falls.

Operations manager Leigh Freeman said: "The sculpture has been erected outside the Visitor Centre and makes a perfect introduction for visitors to the site."

The sculpture is just one of a number of initiatives that we are developing at the falls to make Aberdulais more exciting for visiting families.
