Swansea and District Trail acknowledgements



The creation of this trail was a team effort.

Items were researched and written by Krista Benedikz, Gary Cartwright, Janette Cooper, Ben Davies, John Farnhill, Ffion Griffiths, Rhian Hall, Laura Henley Harrison, Mike Hawkins, Heledd Holloway, Ann Konsbruck, Siân Moran, Clare Rowe, Lukasz Sacharczuk and Maeve Silver.

We are grateful for help from John Ashley (Walking Development Officer, Swansea Council), David Morris (West Glamorgan Archive Service) and many members and former members of the Swansea Jewish community, including David Factor, Maurice Hyman, Norma Glass and Leonard Mars. Contributors to individual items are acknowledged in the Sources.

The original Cardiff website was designed by Steven Baldwin, Neeraj Sharma and Evaldas Vilkinas, with amendments by Owain Lansdowne and Yang Yang. We are indebted to Simon Gottschalk who adapted it for Swansea.

Website content entered by Mike Hawkins.

The trail was coordinated by Mike Hawkins and edited by Laura Harrison, Mike Hawkins and Klavdija Erzen.

The project was led by Klavdija Erzen and funded by JHASW/CHIDC.

We did not receive any grants to create this trail and it was funded from JHASW/CHIDC reserves. For example, the hosting website alone currently costs £6 per month.


We would like to make more trails - on Merthyr and Newport.
