Wrexham – Sunday 30th December 2018

Wrexham is the largest town in North Wales and we decided that as we were so close we would stop there on our way home to visit the Waterstones.  Wrexham was a large mining town before the industry went into decline.   As it was Sunday the town was really quiet.

The Arc Sculpture

This sculpture, located near to the Waterstones, depicts a miner and a steelworker, two industries that were very important to the area.  It was created by David Annand and has a plaque containing lines from a poem by Myrddin ap Dafydd on the base:
