A Bench for Rudry Common “Nightingale walk”.

Published: 14 February 2022

Designed by local artisan, Glen Adams - owner of Horizon Forge, the bench was themed for the nightingale walk situated on Rudry Common to capture its natural surroundings, its ancient hedgerows, gnarled roots and knotted tree’s. The design incorporates both the Welsh and English translation of nightingale walk.

This has been part of a much wider project called the Caerphilly Landscape Partnership where Cllr Jayne Garland has played a major role in its success for the area, benefitting local residents and visitors also incorporating work carried out for Ruperra Castle Preservation Trust and Coed Ruperra Woodland and of course funding the work to refurbish and repair the dry stone wall in Rudry Common car park. The project is funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government and supported by Caerphilly County Borough Council.
