CULTURAL WAY-MARKERS, TREVITHICK TRAIL
Way-markers were needed for the Trevithick Trail project formed part of a larger programme of activities to enhance the Trevithick Trail. The aim was to place interpretation along the route of the Trevithick Trail for users of the trail.
Three way-markers were commissioned for placement along the Trevithick Trail. The markers were placed at Merthyr Vale, Mount Pleasant and Pontygwaith. The body of the markers were made from Cor-ten steel and inset with a bronze plaque. The steel markers reflect the industrial heritage of the area and allude to the Trevithick steam engine, along which the trail runs. The bronze panels depict images of the area that the trail passes through.
