Come For A Visit Any Day
Here's four questions you definitely know the answers to.
Has England forgotten Hadrian's Wall, or Stonehenge, or the Tower of London?
Has France forgotten Notre Dame or the Pont du Gard aqueduct?
Has Italy forgotten the Colosseum?
Has Greece forgotten the Parthenon?
Clearly, those are all big, visible, impressive monuments - and Garn Goch isn't. It's never going to be the tourist attractions they are (we wouldn't want it to be), but it's still much more ancient than all of them, and historically significant for Wales.
Isn't it a little shameful that Welsh heritage is celebrated by the castles that were built to subjugate the Welsh? Isn't it a little disappointing that Welsh cuisine is promoted through bara brith and laverbread? And Welsh heritage promoted by mines that impoverished, maimed and killed Welsh people, while fueling English industry and homes? Isn't Welsh tourism predicated on unspoilt nature and quaint towns only because Wales has been left behind as an underdeveloped country?
What's worse, what Wales could be proud of, it forgets, and fails to make the most of The Largest Ancient Stone Monument In Britain.
Garn Goch is evidence that 'the human imagination is stranger – and stronger – than we can ever hope to understand.’ That was said in relation to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and Garn Goch, of course, does not warrant being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but perhaps it does deserve to be a leading Welsh Heritage Site?
