Answers to the Aberaeron Photo Trail
A national award-winning project
Cymdeithas Aberaeron has been set up to continue the work of the 2007 Aberaeron Bicentenary community heritage project. The Bicentenary project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and included the Aberaeron Town Trail and plaques; traditional skills workshops; schools projects; an oral history project; the Aberaeron 2007 Exhibition and an Exhibition of Quilting and needlework by Aberaeron women.
The Aberaeron Bicentenary heritage project was nominated as the all-Wales winner for the 2008 Nationwide Community and Heritage Awards group category.
