Poppies: Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies seen pouring from the ramparts  to the ground below, originally part of the display at the Tower of London in 2014.

It can be viewed at Caernarfon castle in North Wales until 20th November 2016 – the first venue in Wales to host the sculpture, to mark the centenary of the First World War.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986, Caernarfon Castle, built by Edward I in 1283, is under the guardianship of Cadw, the historic environment service of the Welsh government. [Cadw is the Welsh verb ‘to protect’]

The Wales for Peace Project explores the question: “In the hundred years since WW1, how has Wales contributed in the search for Peace?”
