New welcome signs unveiled at Llangorse

Visitors and residents in Llangorse will notice something different if they walk down to Llangorse Common today.

Situated at the entrance to Llangorse Lake and Common new ‘Welcome to Llangorse Lake and Common’ panels are designed to encourage visitors to explore the area and take a stroll around Llangorse Lake and the Common to discover more.

The initiative is part of Rural Alliances, which is funded by the EU’s Interreg 1VB NWE programme and was created in partnership with the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority, The Discover Llangorse and Bwlch Rural Alliance group and Antomic (who came up with the concepts for the signage) as part of a local strategy to improve the direction and welcome visitors experience.

Richard Tyler, Sustainable Tourism Manager, for Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority said, “We have been working hard with the Llangorse and Bwlch Rural Alliance group to implement some of the recommendations put forward in line with a signage study produced in September 2013.  We hope that by improving the signage at Llangorse Lake and Common we will encourage more visitors to the area who will stay longer once they realize the abundance of activities they can enjoy in and around the Lake.”

Norman Lowe, Chair of Discover Llangorse and Bwlch Rural Alliances group said, “The new signs have been crafted in oak to make sure that they will be attractive as well as informative for a long time to come. They emphasise to both local people and visitors the beauty of Llangorse Lake and Common and are in keeping with the high quality of scenery and visitor attractions here.”
