The ‘Hidden Depths’ exhibition explores Barbara Matthews response to the From gosh and Wemyss mines near to Devil’s Bridge.  She says ‘Over a number of years, I have been fascinated with the effects on the landscape of the old industries of this part of Wales.  The scars on the hillsides and the ruins and remnants of mysterious buildings scattered across the mountain hint at underground workings on a far larger scale than most of us are aware of.  These hidden depths have shaped our towns and villages, influenced our culture and attitudes in a myriad of subtle ways.’
