RegioStars Awards 2018
Finalist: Nant Gwrtheyrn
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.
The ranking shows the preliminary results, based on the votes received through the InfoRegio website and does not contain the additional social media votes of the last week. The final winner of the public choice award will be announced during the award ceremony at 19:00 9 October 2018!
