How to take part

This is a photograph competition celebrating the historical environment of Brechfa Forest and Llanllwni Mountain.  Volunteers within the community have worked with Dyfed Archaeology Trust (DAT) to identify which of the Historical Environment Records for the area are of sites on open access land or should be visible from public rights of way or roads. We wish to assist DAT by collecting and submitting photographs of these sites, as well as collecting a library of photographs celebrating the landscape to promote the area as a tourism destination.
