I have walked in this Parc and we finished the walk by going up one of the back legs, along the spine and coming down by the mouth. It is very impressive. There are also some interesting sculptures throughout the Parc. Well worth a visit if you can get there.
Ooh, diolch Arianrhod! That’s very close to where I grew up, and when I was younger we had to tolerate huge mounds of black slag everywhere, so it’s nice to see things like this popping up around the place - both for their beauty but also as memorials. Will have to mynd â’r ci am dro dros y ceffyl mawr very soon!
It’s nice to see pit ponies celebrated, though they didn’t often get a chance to look like that!! I used to get very choked up every year at the Horse of the Year Show when they dimmed the lights and led in a pit pony with his miner’s lamp…oh, I’m choked up now, remembering. And everyone cheered and applauded, which must have frightened the poor little thing, who wasn’t used to that sort of noise. When they brought them up for miners’ fortnight and they ran and ran and jumped, then they look like that sculpture!!
