Spur 2009 Megan Broadmeadow

"This sculpture has been inspired by a 500 year old riding spur held in St Grwst’s Churnch, said to have been worn by Dafydd ap Siencyn. Living in Gwydir forest with 800 followers, he fought for independence in battles which saw the burning of Llanrwst to the ground more than once." — Interpretation panel

  1. Very cool, Graham. Public art is important and I love it when it’s good. This sculpture fits beautifully nto its surroundings. I took a quick google-look at the sculptor, the forest, the church, and Dafydd – rich history! Is “Dafydd” related to the English name David?
