Nant Gwtheyrn images – Traeth y Nant
I went back to Nant Gwtheyrn for another look around yesterday, and took some photographs – as the ones we were sent by the Director were probably copyrighted, and I didn’t feel I could post them on this blog. The smart new café block is finished (although it was closed to the public) – the café is called after Meinir, the heroine/ victim of the legend of the bride in the oak tree.
It turned out to be a really fine day after what feels like weeks of non-stop rain, and I walked along the beach with a friend. Hard going, as it’s coarse shingle with the odd dead sheep, but the outgoing tide revealed a gently shelving sandy area. We walked back along the Llyn Coastal path, which involved a stiff climb up the cliff and a gentle walk back through wind-stunted oak and hazel woodland. Remnants of Y Nant’s industrial past are everywhere, stone and iron like totem poles defying the elements. There are lots of things here to inspire the printmaker, so I hope we’ll have a really useful few days.
