Designed to showcase the archive of audio and visual resources collected over the years, this new facility at loggerheads Country Park will give visitors the opportunity to dip into the past, present and stories of our incredible landscape.

Materials available to view include the Crawford Films, digitised cine-films that provide a remarkable insight into rural life in the 1940s and 1950s.

The project has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Landscape Partnership Scheme and the Countryside Council for Wales’ Communities and Nature Project.
