Here is an artist’s impression of what we can expect the site to look like when it’s in full bloom. Doesn’t it look beautiful? The design is focused around utilising and enhancing what already exists in the landscape, while incorporating subtle sculptural interventions such as the pathway. While some of the existing scrubland will be left untouched, new plants will be added such as colourful wildflower and birch trees which will encourage new habitats to grow.
If you are familiar with Maesteg, you will know the site of the project as the old Maesteg Washery, the former coalfield. It’s right next to Maesteg Comprehensive School and is bordered by Sustrans’ Llynfi Valley cycling and walking route. If you are in the area, be sure to check it out!
