Second World War exhibition a hit at Rhydymwyn Valley

VISITORS to Rhydymwyn Valley Works had the chance to learn about the history of the site.

Rhydymwyn Valley History Society has been busy cataloguing every piece of graffiti, art and writing which appears on the walls of the former Second World War munitions factory.

The exhibition, organised by the society, took place earlier this month.

It included pictures, artefacts and the showing of a specially commissioned film on the graffiti.

Among the graffiti which appears at the site is an image of a German U-Boat under a bomb attack from aeroplanes.

There was also a display of militaria including uniforms.

The star attraction for visitors was an aircraft cockpit, which was displayed in the field study centre.

Chairman of Rhydymwyn Valley History Society, Colin Barber, said: “We wish to thank everyone who helped but particularly DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) for the use of the site and Cadwyn Clwyd for its funding package.”
