Residents are being sought for involvement in an Iron Age hillfort project.

Cambrian News reported “Grant funding for improvements to Pen Dinas, near Aberystwyth, has been successfully secured by Ceredigion County Council.

And as part of the project, the council is seeking for local residents to express their interest if they would like to be involved in the work.

One of the Council’s community access officers will be on hand to talk further about the project on Saturday, 20 October, at the Hub, Penparcau Community Centre between 10.30am and 1pm.

The project will provide greater access to a site of historical importance namely Pen Dinas Hillfort, Local Nature Reserve and Scheduled Ancient Monument.

It will also improve links to the Ystwyth/Rheidol Cycle Trails, the Ceredigion and All Wales Coast Path and other local amenities and attractions.

Improving the path width and surface will increase access to a wider cross-section of residents and visitors and target current barriers to the countryside.

Cllr Rhodri Evans, Cabinet member with responsibility for economy and regeneration, said: “The news that we’ve been successful in securing this bid is fantastic and on behalf of the council, I thank all the residents who submitted feedback to the application. We are looking for anyone who has an interest in the site and would like to be involved with how this project progresses. This is the perfect opportunity for residents to be part of something that will make a big difference to both residents and tourists alike.”

To express an interest to be involved in the project or to receive further information, email Eifion.Jones@ceredigion.gov.uk or call 01545 570881″ here.
