Britain from Above is back to finish the 3D model of Trimsaran village, which we started in February half- term to showcase at the National Eisteddfod in Llanelli this August. The Britain from Above project is a free online collection of historical aerial photographs from 1919─53
( for everyone to access however, Aerofilms Ltd, the company who took these incredible images, managed to miss Trimsaran! This project is working to add Trimsaran to the website with our own aerial view of the village in the form of the model. We want to share the village’s story with the rest of the users of Britain from Above and with visitors to the National Eisteddfod.

So far we’ve had houses, roads, trees and the leisure centre created but we need your help to finish it!

In February people brought along old photographs and maps of the area that we’ve added to the Britain from Above website, so that more people will be able to find out about the Village and its history.

Come along and share your  knowledge of the village and the local area and showcase your craft skills! We need knitters, crocheteers, colourers-in, cutters-out and stickers-down!

Everyone welcome, drop by and join in!
