01:58 minutes / mp4


Nant Gwrtheyrn is located in a deep valley overlooking the Irish Sea in north west Wales. An abandoned quarry village has been renovated as a centre to promote Welsh culture and language. A range of partners enabled a 7 million EUR project to provide a new access road, accommodation, function suite, café, shop and heritage centre to tell the stories of the quarries and life in this remote region. The village transformed and now employs 30 staff and welcomes over 40,000 visitors a year.

Nant Gwrtheyrn is the winner in the Category 5 - Investing in cultural heritage.
