The Cabins Conwy
The Cabins Conwy is part of Ancient Arts Ltd, a company started in the early 1990’s by David & Sue Chapman to research ancient technologies and to provide education resources and public events for heritage sites and museums across the UK. Since then we have worked for all the major museums in the UK and appeared on many TV shows. For more information on this work please visit our website at: www.ancient-
In 2000 we bought Llangelynin New Church to use as our Studio and shortly after we acquired Cae Eglwys, thanks to Dr P Gillan of nearby Merchlyn and renamed the field Cae Richard in memory of her late husband, Richard.
Our aim was to allow the field to revert from heavily used pasture (which was managed using chemical sprays) back to a more natural state using permaculture techniques rather than chemicals. This has dramatically increase the biodiversity in both plant and animal life.

We are also very interested in merging traditional farming techniques with modern permaculture ideas and have already undertaken a project in exploring ancient biochar technologies in partnership with the University of Wales.
We have also planted an orchard and intend to continue growing more and more sustainable edible crops!
