Cerflun Cranogwen yn yr Ardd y Pentref – mwy o fanylion at Cranogwen.org
The statue of Cranogwen is now in the upper Garden and has been delighting visitors over the summer. More information on the Cranogwen.org site.
Llangrannog Welfare Committee members, along with the Cranogwen statue team (CCCCM) and community volunteers, have almost finished the renovation of the beloved Gardd y Pentref – Village Garden, located between Banc-y-Felin chapel and Y Gerwn waterfall on the road down to the beach.
The first JustGiving page raised over £4,000, and the team won a grant from Ceredigion County Council to support the work.
Ahead of the public unveiling of the new statue of local heroine Cranogwen on 10 June, the team need to make good a new, safer entrance by removing old concrete and making an accessible slope into the garden. There is also some planting and trimming left to do.
We also hope to have enough money to provide information boards to illustrate Cranogwen’s life and importance, as well as celebrate the hard work of many villagers in the garden over the years. This and money for the entrance and the renovation of the old steps down to the lower garden mean that we must raise at least another £2,000. We also need to cover some costs due to rising prices of building materials. If there is enough money we will also purchase new seating for the garden.
Built in the early 1900s, the garden has been further developed and maintained by successive local gardeners and builders. The new design preserves aspects of the garden such as the original slate walls, and builds on it to provide a perfect site for Cranogwen to gaze towards her beloved beach.
The new garden was created by local garden designer Gail Robinson following consultation with the wider community. Stonework has been done by Teifi Landscaping. The design incorporates some of Cranogwen’s poetry, which has been set into the new stone floor.
We have worked in partnership with the Cranogwen Community Monument team and Monumental Welsh Women to bring this idea to life, and hope that the generosity we have seen so far will continue to enable us to make this special space last at least another century.

Mae’n bach yn oer i weithio ar yr ardd ar hyn o bryd! Ond mae’r tîm wedi bod yn rho pethau lawr i weld sut mae’n edrych. Gwych!
It’s a bit cold to be working on the Garden at the moment! But the Teifi Landcscaping team have been setting the stones down to see how things look. Great!
