October 2013 saw the opening of the new The Welsh National and Universal Mining Memorial Garden in Senghenydd.
The central bronze sculpture entitled ‘The Rescue’ was designed and made by sculptor Les Johnson..
The ceramic name tiles for the Memorial Wall were made at a series of community and school workshops during November 2012. These were led by ceramic artists Ned Heywood and Julia Land from Chepstow and involved all the local Primary Schools of the Aber Valley.
The ceramic paviers documenting each national colliery disaster in Wales were also made by Ned and Julia at their workshop.
The Memorial Garden’s layout and planting scheme was designed by landscape architect Stephanie Wilkins.
Memorial Garden Opening Times
