PLWM partnerships

Digwydd Drysau Agored - Open Doors Event

This project has received funding through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007-2013 which is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The Countryside Council for Wales £45,000 contribution and Cadw' £15,000 shows the acknowledgment of need for projects relating to environmentally sensitive and historic sites and the rural communities adjacent to them.

The Welsh Mines Society and the Welsh Mines Preservation Trust are acting as the Steering Group as well as other partners who are non-funding.  The formation of Ceredigion Mines Forum has provided the opportunity for organisations with sometimes conflicting remts to discuss more general and site-specific issues face to face. 

Members of the forum include:

  • Cadw
  • The Countryside Council for Wales (CCW)
  • Environment Agency Wales
  • Pentir Pumlumon
  • National Museum of Wales
  • Cambria Archaeology
  • Ceredigion Archives
  • Royal Commission for Ancient Historic Monuments of Wales
  • Ceredigion Museum
  • Ceredigion County Council
  • The Forestry Commission
  • Llywernog Silver-Lead Mine Museum
  • Early Mines Research Group
  • National Association of Mining Heritage Organisations

The forum meets annually and keeps in touch via email.

PLWM will be working closely with Communities First in Tregaron.  This community led group includes the villages of Tregaron, Pontrhydfendigaid, Ysbyty Ystwyth, Pontrhydygroes, New Row, Devil's Bridge and Ponterwyd.
