And see examples of the Welsh language visible today in the town’s art, architecture and public spaces.
The guided walk starts from Canolfan Soar and ends at Redhouse, taking in examples of the Welsh language from plaques to poems and tombstones to place names. As Huw writes, “Merthyr Tydfil is a Welsh town: it always has been. There is no doubt about it.” Join us to find out more!
