The Calon Lan Centre

The Calon Lân centre project has been set up to maintain and encourage an understanding of our local heritage. The main aim of the organisation is to give communities a sense of belonging and identity using the history of the local area and the story of Calon Lân to bring people together. The centre is based at Mynyddbach Chapel in Swansea and is the home and burial place of the Welsh Bard Gwyrosydd who wrote amongst other things the words to the famous Welsh Hymn Calon Lân.

The Calon Lan Centre is supported by the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme. Calon Lan Centre Website
