THE LIVING TAFF

The Living Taff celebrates all the great things along the river's journey. The Taff starts in a National Park, makes its way through an area famous for its part in the industrial revolution, and has its estuary in Wales' capital city. For a long time, people turned away from the river as it was used by the coal industry to take away waste, but the river has since returned to life. We believe that the river can be seen as a way to link the area's towns, and be a protected place for people to enjoy and connect with nature.

Mark Your Spot

Over its course and its history it is a river that has born witness to so much of south Wales’ history, touching so many communities through its extensive system of tributaries, but what of its significance to Wales’ cultural life and memory? What significance does it have on our local environment, and how is it being effected by climate change?

Since the river has not often been celebrated, we're looking to develop an archive of stories to show what it has done to inspire.

What you can do:

In 100 words, tell us about the place that means most to you along the river's journey, or to tell a story of fiction - something that you can imagine happening or that happened. Your story can be in Welsh or English. 

Over the coming months, we'll share your story on our website and social media. It would be nice to talk to you about your story after you have submitted, if you're happy with that.
