A tiny torrent of words for tremendous torrents of water

One of our most recent commissions, in association with Red Kite Environment, was for Brecon Beacons National Park Authority. They asked for very brief statements that could be carved into the timber supports of welcome panels near some of the spectacular waterfalls in the Park. Brynach Parri provided the Welsh versions.

At Craig y Dinas – site of a former iron works

Toiling rivers turn mighty engines
Nerth afonydd yn troi peiriannau mawr

At Pont Melin-fach – site of a former mill

Captured currents grind daily bread

Ffrydiau caeth yn malu bara beunyddiol

At Sgwd Clun Gwyn – a precipitous waterfall

Sudden torrents drown tumbling steps

Llifiannau sydyn yn boddi grisiau serth

At Cwm Porth – entrance to a series of caves

Searching waters carve dark secrets
Dyfroedd chwilgar yn cerfio tywyllwch cêl

At Gwaun Hepste – an area of woodland

Seeping streams reach thirsty roots

Nentydd yn treiddio i wreiddiau sychion
