The Town of Caernarfon

Caernarfon is a Royal town, community and port in Gwynedd, Wales, with a population of 9,611 with over 80% of the population speaking the ancient language of Cymraeg (Welsh). You will hear it spoken on the the streets, in the cafes and bars and in the shops and restaurants It lies along the A487 road, on the east banks of the Menai Straits, opposite the Isle of Anglesey. The city of Bangor is 8.6 miles (13.8 km) to the northeast, while Snowdonia fringes Caernarfon to the east and southeast. Caernarvon and Carnarvon are archaic anglicised spellings of Caernarfon, but used rarely.

Few towns in Britain can claim to be inhabited without a break since pre-Roman times, but the Royal Town of Caernarfon is just such a town.

Heritage Centre Petition

Please get in touch with Emrys to sign the petition calling on the Welsh Government to finance a Heritage Centre in Caernarfon. It is despicable that a town such as Caernarfon does not have a centre where the richness of it’s history, the history of it’s people, their language, it’s industry and development can be displayed in a designated building which could house many of the treasures which have been taken from Caernarfon.
