Can you help?! ABC are looking for volunteers in the following areas

Building Recording

Helping our landscape archaeologist undertake preliminary site visits to properties identified through the landscape mapping programme

Communications

Keeping the local and wider community and the media updated on what ABC is doing is important.

Fundraising

ABC needs help to raise funds to cover the cost of purchase and building work. This will vary from project to project. Once a building has been identified and a feasibility study is completed, fundraising targets will be listed. But we also need general funds to support the running and development of the charity.

If you are interested in helping in any of these areas, please contact Helen Whitear helenw@abcwales.org.uk

During 2017 ABC ran a series of community events and workshops as part of our Grass Roots Heritage Project.  These events were focused around Myddfai and Llanddeusant in the north-western corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The many abandoned traditional buildings which came to light during our Historic Landscape Mapping Programme, helped to inform the focus of the workshops and events throughout the year.

The last year has been an amazing opportunity to celebrate and share this very local heritage. It’s been really good to take time to appreciate some of the fascinating hidden histories which are right on our doorsteps, but which are often overshadowed by ‘big heritage’ like castles and stately homes. Our community events meant we met lots of new people and were able to provide support and advice about looking after older buildings that survive in this part of rural Wales, and also hopefully inspire those involved in the project about the rich cultural heritage that these small abandoned buildings represent. Adfer Ban a Chwm worked with over twenty volunteers who helped to record some of the buildings identified through our mapping programme, and talked to many local people throughout the project and at our five key events.
