By popular demand! Come along and enjoy our exhibition ‘Dereliction’ for a little bit longer, at the Tywi Centre, Dinefwr Farm, Llandeilo, during the week between Monday 26th June and Thursday 29th June (10am - 3pm)


A photographic exhibition of the abandoned buildings of South West Wales

ABC invites you to come and view ‘Dereliction’ at the Tywi Centre, Dinefwr Farm, Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire from 19th to 22nd June 2017. 

The exhibition is being held to draw attention to the great number of historically significant derelict vernacular buildings across the region, and the cultural loss that their decline, without recognition or record represents.

This exhibition will also showcase work carried out during ABC’s ‘Grass Roots Heritage’ Project.
