Life-size Glyndwr statue unveiled
A life-size statue of Owain Glyndwrwho led an historic Welsh uprising against rule from England has been unveiled in the town where he was born.
The £125,000 bronze monument, which has taken four years to make, has been erected in Corwen in Denbighshire.
Its unveiling had been delayed after a lorry carrying its plinth plunged down a ravine in China earlier this year.
It marks the 16 September anniversary of the day that Glyndwr was proclaimed the first Prince of Wales in 1400.
Heritage Minister Rhodri Glyn Thomas unveiled the 4.5m (14.7ft) statue, which depicts Glyndwr astride a battle charger rallying people to the Welsh cause on the outbreak of hostilities in September 1400.
Commissioned by the Corwen Partnership, the statue will replace an earlier representation of Glyndwr installed by the Corwen Community Council in the 1980s.
"We are absolutely delighted that this stunning depiction of Glyndwr is finally being installed in his home town and believe it will become a real icon not only for Corwen and the Dee Valley but the Welsh nation as a whole," said Nigel Davies, chairman of the Corwen Partnership.
