£149,700 lottery grant to preserve poet Hedd Wyn's home

The family home of Wales' famous World War One poet Hedd Wyn will be transformed into a museum, thanks to a Lottery grant of nearly £150,000.

The farmhouse was bought by the National Park, with Welsh Government funding earlier this year. Now plans to make it an international tourist attraction have been unveiled.

Esyllt Carr has been hearing why the move is being welcomed by the poet's family and the wider community near Trawsfynydd in Snowdonia.
