Beautiful drawings of the lovely buildings of Merthyr Tydfil - some of them no longer standing, by Gwyther Barnes.

Gwyther Barnes is a local artist, native to Merthyr Tydfil. For many years he served as a well-respected Art Master, teaching in local schools Gellifaelog Secondary Modern & Pen Y Dre. During his retirement, until quite recently, he worked tirelessly with the Royal British Legion as Chairman and later as President.

Merthyr Tydfil has always been a great love of his, the generosity of the people and the town. For years, he has been capturing the buildings which are now lost to development.
This is a unique opportunity to see these drawings created by Gwyther Barnes since the 1950s, the lost buildings of the town and characters that have been part of his creative journey.
