Llwyn Celyn is a Grade 1 listed medieval building. Once part of the Llanthony Priory estate it was built in the late 15th century. Llwyn Celyn sits on a hillside at the mouth of the Llanthony Valley, a few mile from the ruins of the priory. The valley has for centuries attracted poets, artist and romantics and witnessed the struggles between English and Welsh rule. Our project has not just saved the site, but also tells its history - the story of the people who inhabited it during times of political upheaval and agricultural change.
Be the first to see a site-specific artwork by artist Laura Wilson commissioned by The Landmark Trust. 'Towards a Prevailing Wind' (2021) will be on display in the Threshing Barn throughout the weekend. The work follows Wilson’s exploration into the process of bread making and investigating how the body learns, adapts, responds to and performs manual work, posing questions around labour, regaining lost skills, the link between food and wellbeing, and passing on knowledge through embodied practice.
