In March 2011 pupils from Maesteg Comprehensive and YGG Llangynwyd worked with poets Grahame Davies and Mike Church to create a series of poems and statements inspired by their local history and local environment.
A selection of the English and Welsh Language work will be used in artworks to be created by sculptor Adam Williamson. The Public Artworks, in the form of inscribed rocks, boulders and benches will line the route of the new cycle track which will link Bridgend with the Afan Valley in Neath Port Talbot.
This project will be supported by Sustrans and forms part of a strategic plan to develop the cycle network in this area of Bridgend. As well as the planned cycle path a new BMX track is due to be constructed in Caerau. There will be a large scale event in Maesteg in May 2011 to launch this scheme.
An artwork bench will be placed on the cycle path near Maesteg Comprehensive School.
The Welsh language work was created by YGG Llangynwyd working with Grahame Davies
