Adroddiad Capel Crannog Report

PDF downloads of the feasibility report prepared over the last six months with a Perthyn grant from the WG via Cwmpas. This was presented at the Welfare Committee AGM in April 2024

The Welfare have sought to explore ideas relating to the redevelopment of the Capel Crannog site for the benefit of the village. We were approached by the current trustees of Canolfan Crannog to help with keeping the site as a village asset.

The first part of the report explains ideas, possibilities, local need and research done. Note that these are all ideas at the moment, no decisions have been made and there is more work to be done. We welcome comments, support, questions and ideas! 

Apologies that this is currently English-only; you are welcome to contact Kat in Welsh or English llangrannogwelfare@gmail.com

A Community and Commemoration Project in Llangrannog


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.

Car Park Update Feb 2023

The Llangrannog beachfront car park has a new parking machine which takes coins and cards. You can also use JustPark to pay (but the wifi is very slow). The rule that you must pay within ten minutes of entering the car park remains in place. There are new signs which clearly state the conditions of parking.

It should be noted that vandalism of the new machine or any car park property will be on CCTV. Please do not tamper with the machine; this means others cannot pay and is counter-productive.

We hope that the new machine will allevaite the problems that we have seen with the car park in the last few years. For any advice, please email the Welfare Committee at llangrannogwelfare@gmail.com.

Mae gan faes parcio glan traeth Llangrannog beiriant parcio newydd sy’n cymryd darnau arian a chardiau. Gallwch hefyd ddefnyddio JustPark i dalu (ond mae’r wifi yn araf iawn). Mae’r rheol bod yn rhaid i chi dalu o fewn deng munud i fynd i mewn i’r maes parcio yn parhau mewn grym. Mae arwyddion newydd sy’n nodi’n glir yr amodau parcio.

Dylid nodi y bydd y peiriant newydd neu unrhyw eiddo maes parcio yn cael ei fandaleiddio ar deledu cylch cyfyng. Peidiwch ag ymyrryd â’r peiriant; mae hyn yn golygu na all eraill dalu ac mae’n wrthgynhyrchiol.

Gobeithiwn y bydd y peiriant newydd yn lleddfu’r problemau yr ydym wedi’u gweld gyda’r maes parcio yn y blynyddoedd diwethaf. Am unrhyw gyngor, e-bostiwch y Pwyllgor Lles ar llangrannogwelfare@gmail.com.

Ardd y Pentref – Village Garden

Mae Pwyllgor Lles Llangrannog wedi dechrau ar y gwaith o adnewyddu Gardd y Pentre sydd wedi’i lleoli rhwng capel Bancyfelin a rhaeadr Y Gerwn.

Dyn ni eisoes wedi codi dros £2,000 ac wedi derbyn grant gan Gyngor Sir Ceredigion i gefnogi’r gwaith. Ein nod yw codi £8000 a’n gobaith yw cael eich help chi i wireddu’r freuddwyd hon.

Cafodd cynllun yr ardd ei greu gan Gail Robinson, person lleol sy’n arbenigo mewn gerddi. Roedd hyn yn dilyn ymgynghoriad ymhlith aelodau o’r gymuned. Teifi Landscaping sy’n gwneud y gwaith. Bydd llinellau o farddoniaeth Cranogwen yn cael eu hymgorffori yn y llawr carreg newydd. Yn y cynllun hefyd, gallwch weld mynedfa newydd mwy diogel a lleoedd i blannu planhigion o bob math.

Crewyd yr ardd yn 19…., ac yn ystod y blynyddoedd diwetha mae’r ardd wedi cael ei chynnal gan nifer o arddwyr ac adeiladwyr lleol. Bydd y cynllun newydd yn cadw rhai agweddau o’r ardd wreiddiol fel y waliau llechi ond bydd y datblygiad newydd yn lleoliad perffaith ar gyfer cerflun Cranogwen, ein harwres leol. Dyn ni’n gweithio mewn cydweithrediad â Thîm Prosiect Cymunedol Cranogwen a Monumental Welsh Women.

Y gobaith hefyd yw casglu digon o arian i ddarparu byrddau gwybodaeth am fywyd a gwaith Cranogwen a hefyd dathlu gwaith caled nifer o bentrefwyr yn yr ardd dros y blynyddoedd.

Llangrannog Welfare Committee have begun work on renovating the beloved Village Garden, located between Banc-y-Felin chapel and Y Gerwn waterfall.

We have already raised over £2,000 and have won a grant from Ceredigion County Council to support the work. We aim to raise another £8,000 and hope you can help us realise this dream.

The garden design shown was created by local garden expert Gail Robinson following consultation with community members. Work is being done by Teifi Landscaping. The design incorporates some of Cranogwen’s poetry, which will be set into the new stone floor. The plan shows a new, safer entrance, new planters and space for hardy, annual plants.

Built in the early 1900s, the garden has been further developed and maintained by successive local gardeners and builders. The new design aims to preserve aspects of the garden such as the original slate walls, and build on it to provide a perfect site for a statue of Cranogwen, our local heroine. We are working in partnership with the Cranogwen Community Monument team and Monumental Welsh Women to bring this idea to life.

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.
