-Welcome to Codi Pac.

0:00:000:00:01

-I'm Geraint Hardy,

-and I'm travelling across Wales...

0:00:020:00:05

-..to find some of our treasures.

0:00:060:00:08

-If you want a weekend away,

-you needn't travel far.

0:00:080:00:11

-It's all on the doorstep.

0:00:110:00:13

-Places to eat, places to stay,

-things to do and see.

0:00:130:00:17

-They're all here on Codi Pac.

0:00:170:00:19

-This week, I'm in

-the seaside town of Beaumaris.

0:00:470:00:50

-It has something for everyone.

0:00:510:00:53

-It's got a prison, castle and crabs.

-What more do you need?

0:00:530:00:58

-The name Beaumaris

-comes from the Norman Beau Marais...

0:00:580:01:02

-..which mean fair marsh.

0:01:020:01:04

-Beaumaris Castle

-is a World Heritage Site.

0:01:050:01:09

-It was built by Edward I

-between 1295 and 1330.

0:01:100:01:16

-It has an impressive

-concentric design...

0:01:170:01:20

-..and attracts visitors

-from all over the world.

0:01:200:01:23

-This week's journey starts here

-at The Bull in Beaumaris.

0:01:310:01:36

-I'm looking forward

-to seeing my room.

0:01:360:01:39

-The Ye Olde Bulls Head Inn

-was built in 1472.

0:01:400:01:44

-It was the headquarters

-for General Thomas Mytton...

0:01:440:01:48

-..during the English Civil War.

0:01:480:01:51

-The Bull's most famous guest

-was Charles Dickens.

0:01:520:01:55

-I've stayed in a variety of places

-during this series.

0:01:560:01:59

-I'm really lucky today.

0:02:000:02:01

-I'm in a posh hotel.

0:02:020:02:04

-This bed says it all.

0:02:040:02:07

-It's grand and majestic.

0:02:070:02:10

-This room is called

-the General Mytton.

0:02:110:02:13

-The bed is definitely

-for someone important...

0:02:140:02:16

-..just like me!

0:02:160:02:18

-From the bedroom to the lounge.

0:02:180:02:20

-Look at these

-beautiful wooden beams.

0:02:200:02:23

-It's great to see that the table

-was built around the beams.

0:02:230:02:27

-From the lounge to the bathroom.

0:02:280:02:31

-There are several

-clever things here.

0:02:310:02:33

-This screen separates the room

-without the need to build a wall.

0:02:340:02:38

-It's simple and effective.

0:02:380:02:40

-Over here, there's a hidden window

-that allows light in...

0:02:400:02:43

-..if you're taking a shower or bath.

0:02:440:02:46

-Right here, look at this.

0:02:470:02:49

-There's a couple's sink here.

0:02:490:02:51

-Tonight, there's just a sink for me.

0:02:510:02:53

-If you want to stay

-outside the town...

0:03:000:03:02

-..you can head

-to Trosyrafon mansion.

0:03:030:03:05

-It's a perfect escape...

0:03:060:03:08

-..with flats, cottages

-or the main house all available.

0:03:080:03:12

-It's ideal for families,

-a large party or even weddings.

0:03:120:03:16

-The town's prison

-is well worth a visit.

0:03:240:03:28

-This is a building

-full of memories and secrets.

0:03:290:03:32

-You'll get a good idea of what

-prisoners' lives were like.

0:03:340:03:38

-The prison was built in 1829

-by Hansom during the Victorian Age.

0:03:390:03:45

-He's famous for the Hansom cabs

-in Victorian London.

0:03:450:03:48

-Historian Geraint Rowlands meets me

-in a special part of the building.

0:03:480:03:53

-Tell us what used to happen

-in this part of the building.

0:03:530:03:57

-If a prisoner had been sentenced

-to hard labour by the court...

0:04:010:04:06

-..they had one of two choices.

0:04:080:04:10

-They could either break rocks

-or go on the wheel.

0:04:110:04:15

-What was the wheel?

0:04:150:04:17

-Well, obviously, it's a wheel,

-but it's more like a mill.

0:04:170:04:20

-It was attached to a pump.

0:04:200:04:22

-The pump would pump water up

-from the well...

0:04:220:04:25

-..to storage tanks in the roof.

0:04:250:04:27

-It provided the whole building

-with a supply of water.

0:04:280:04:31

-It's unique.

0:04:340:04:35

-It's the only one in the UK still

-in place at its original location.

0:04:360:04:41

-It looks like hard work.

0:04:430:04:44

-Ten solid hours every day.

0:04:450:04:47

-Ten hours. They would be on the

-wheel for ten minutes at a time.

0:04:480:04:53

-They'd rest for ten minutes...

0:04:530:04:56

-..and alternate like that all day.

0:04:560:04:59

-Life here was clearly hard.

0:05:000:05:03

-Next,

-we'll see just how tough it was.

0:05:030:05:06

-Explain what happened in this room.

0:05:130:05:15

-This is the death sentence cell.

0:05:150:05:17

-This cell is a little larger

-than the other cells.

0:05:180:05:22

-It has a fireplace.

0:05:230:05:24

-It has a fireplace.

-

-The bed's also larger.

0:05:240:05:26

-Is that because

-it was their last night?

0:05:260:05:29

-Yes, a bit of comfort before

-they were sent to the gallows.

0:05:290:05:33

-There's a classroom here

-on the right. Why?

0:05:360:05:39

-Children were kept here

-as well as adults.

0:05:390:05:43

-They came here for lessons,

-to learn to read and write.

0:05:440:05:49

-Hugh Owen was locked up here

-when he was 14 years old.

0:05:500:05:55

-He was caught poaching

-on the local landowner's estate.

0:05:570:06:03

-He'd stolen a rabbit

-or a couple of pheasants.

0:06:050:06:09

-He was sentenced to six months.

0:06:100:06:13

-Six months?

0:06:130:06:14

-Six months?

-

-Six months of hard labour.

0:06:140:06:16

-That was for poaching a rabbit

-or pheasant to feed the family.

0:06:160:06:21

-It seems very harsh.

0:06:210:06:23

-It was incredibly harsh.

0:06:230:06:26

-Moving on, there's something

-I wasn't expecting to see.

0:06:260:06:31

-There's a nursery here.

-Why is there a nursery?

0:06:310:06:35

-If a mother with a child

-was jailed here...

0:06:350:06:41

-..and she had a young child...

0:06:410:06:43

-..the child would come in

-with the mother.

0:06:440:06:47

-Under the nursery,

-where the babies stayed...

0:06:470:06:51

-..is the room

-where the women worked.

0:06:520:06:55

-There's a hole in the floor for

-a rope that's attached to the crib.

0:06:560:07:02

-If the baby started crying...

0:07:030:07:05

-..all the mother

-would have to do is pull the rope...

0:07:050:07:08

-..to rock the crib

-and pacify the baby.

0:07:090:07:11

-As easy as that.

0:07:120:07:13

-I don't know about that.

0:07:140:07:16

-To finish up, we started with the

-death penalty cell and we're here.

0:07:160:07:21

-There's a door here

-that leads nowhere.

0:07:210:07:25

-It used to lead

-to something very specific.

0:07:250:07:27

-That's the journey

-that Richard Rowlands...

0:07:300:07:33

-..and William Griffiths

-took toward the gallows.

0:07:340:07:37

-The final walk to the gallows.

0:07:370:07:39

-A wooden stage

-was built from the doorway.

0:07:400:07:43

-On the other side of that door

-were the gallows.

0:07:450:07:51

-The gallows

-were built in the street.

0:07:520:07:55

-A crowd would gather outside

-to watch the hanging.

0:07:570:08:01

-They were public executions.

0:08:010:08:03

-They were the only men

-to be hanged here.

0:08:030:08:06

-Yes.

0:08:060:08:07

-What was their specific history?

0:08:070:08:09

-Griffiths

-was the first to be hanged.

0:08:090:08:12

-He was found guilty of attempting

-to murder one of his wives.

0:08:120:08:16

-He had two wives.

0:08:160:08:18

-They had trouble

-getting him out of the cell.

0:08:180:08:21

-Richard Rowlands

-protested his innocence.

0:08:230:08:27

-That he hadn't killed

-his father-in-law.

0:08:270:08:30

-He was led to the gallows

-on the morning of the execution...

0:08:310:08:36

-..and cursed the church's clock.

0:08:360:08:40

-The clock hasn't kept time

-since that day.

0:08:400:08:44

-If these walls could talk, I'm sure

-they'd have story after story.

0:08:440:08:50

-I never thought I'd say these words.

0:08:540:08:57

-I've enjoyed being in prison.

0:08:570:09:00

-What an incredible place,

-it's taken me back in time.

0:09:000:09:03

-One thing's for sure, I wouldn't

-want to spend a night here.

0:09:030:09:07

-That's another

-of Beaumaris' good points.

0:09:220:09:25

-In bad weather, there are plenty

-of shops to keep you happy.

0:09:250:09:29

-I'm more than happy with

-my luxurious room in the Bull.

0:09:440:09:47

-But I also want to show you

-a wonderful eco cabin.

0:09:480:09:52

-This is Nyth Y Wiwer's cosy cabin.

0:09:520:09:54

-All I can hear is the wind

-whistling through the trees...

0:10:030:10:07

-..and birds tweeting merrily.

0:10:070:10:09

-What I can see are amazing views

-of North Wales's coastline.

0:10:090:10:14

-I can see the Great Orme

-and Llandudno in the distance.

0:10:140:10:17

-What a great place to stay

-and enjoy some peace of mind.

0:10:170:10:20

-But what's inside?

0:10:200:10:22

-The simple answer is, everything!

0:10:280:10:31

-There's a bed and a viewing

-point to look at the view.

0:10:320:10:36

-There's a place to cook.

0:10:370:10:39

-There's also a fire

-that can be used to boil a kettle.

0:10:400:10:45

-There's also a kitchen downstairs.

0:10:450:10:48

-To escape from the world,

-this is the place to come.

0:10:480:10:51

-You get a wolf as well!

0:10:520:10:54

-John, it's a lovely place

-you have here.

0:10:560:10:59

-What was your initial inspiration

-to create this nest?

0:10:590:11:02

-Nature and tranquillity.

0:11:030:11:08

-It's great for everyone

-and in particular for city people.

0:11:080:11:14

-People love it. All who come leave

-positive comments in the book.

0:11:160:11:20

-We're very glad of that.

0:11:200:11:23

-It's incredibly quiet here,

-with wonderful views.

0:11:230:11:27

-You built this yourself.

0:11:290:11:30

-Yes, it was hard work,

-carrying everything up here.

0:11:300:11:34

-I enjoy working with wood.

0:11:340:11:38

-How long do people come and stay?

0:11:380:11:40

-Most people come

-for two or three nights.

0:11:410:11:44

-We've had the odd guest

-staying for a week.

0:11:450:11:49

-Even during stormy weather,

-they've enjoyed themselves.

0:11:490:11:53

-A woman from York

-came to stay for three weeks.

0:11:540:11:57

-She was here on her own.

0:11:570:11:59

-She loved living close to nature.

0:11:590:12:04

-She enjoyed seeing red squirrels

-every morning...

0:12:040:12:09

-..when she opens the curtain.

0:12:090:12:12

-From what people write in the book,

-they enjoy the peace and quiet.

0:12:160:12:20

-We're really close to nature here.

0:12:210:12:24

-John, I love the place

-and thanks for the chat.

0:12:250:12:27

-Thank you.

0:12:280:12:30

-From the squirrel's nest,

-to my own nest.

0:12:410:12:43

-After a long day in Beaumaris...

0:12:440:12:46

-..where better to relax before

-bedtime than this luxurious lounge?

-I've had a great night's sleep...

0:13:090:13:11

-..but I've got much more

-to do in Beaumaris...

0:13:110:13:14

-..including meeting a turtle

-and seeing some art.

0:13:150:13:18

-First, I'm meeting a local learner.

0:13:180:13:20

-Neil, this is Beaumaris'

-wonderful church.

0:13:360:13:39

-Thanks for the welcome.

0:13:390:13:40

-Well, welcome to Beaumaris.

0:13:410:13:43

-Are you the vicar of this church?

0:13:430:13:45

-Are you the vicar of this church?

-

-Yes, the parish priest.

0:13:450:13:46

-What's Beaumaris like?

0:13:470:13:49

-Why do people come here?

0:13:500:13:51

-Why do people come here?

-

-It's an old-fashioned town...

0:13:510:13:54

-..in the best sense of the term.

0:13:550:13:57

-That's what people say.

0:13:580:14:00

-People have time to talk...

0:14:000:14:04

-..to make a connection

-and to help each other.

0:14:040:14:08

-Tell me about the history

-of the church.

0:14:090:14:12

-The castle came first...

0:14:120:14:15

-..and then a walled town

-like Conwy and Caernarfon...

0:14:150:14:19

-..then came the church.

0:14:190:14:21

-The church has two parts.

0:14:210:14:22

-The church has two parts.

-

-There are two parts.

0:14:220:14:24

-The nave, the body of the church...

0:14:250:14:29

-..and the chancel, the most sacred

-part, was built a century later.

0:14:300:14:34

-Siwan's tomb

-is also here in the church.

0:14:350:14:37

-Siwan was Llywelyn the Great's wife.

0:14:380:14:41

-Siwan was Llywelyn the Great's wife.

-

-Joan, in English.

0:14:410:14:43

-Do a lot of people come here

-specifically to see it?

0:14:430:14:47

-Oh, yes, a lot.

0:14:480:14:49

-It's a romantic story too.

0:14:490:14:53

-Llywelyn loved his wife.

0:14:540:14:57

-One of the Bulkeleys,

-a famous Beaumaris family...

0:14:570:15:03

-..discovered the tomb in a field.

0:15:030:15:09

-They wanted to respect the tomb.

0:15:130:15:17

-After that,

-the tomb was moved to the church.

0:15:170:15:21

-She was

-the King of England's daughter...

0:15:210:15:24

-..and the Prince of Gwynedd's wife.

0:15:240:15:27

-You've learnt Welsh.

0:15:270:15:29

-What made you decide to learn Welsh?

0:15:290:15:32

-I was raised in Manchester.

0:15:330:15:35

-My family moved to Colwyn Bay,

-and there wasn't much Welsh there.

0:15:350:15:39

-It was rather anglicized.

0:15:390:15:41

-I was eager to take part

-in the community.

0:15:410:15:47

-I went on a course in Lampeter...

0:15:490:15:52

-..to improve my language skills.

0:15:520:15:56

-Practice is vital, and it's crucial

-to start a conversation in Welsh.

0:15:560:16:02

-Do you hear a lot of Welsh

-in Beaumaris, generally?

0:16:020:16:06

-Yes, there's a lot.

0:16:060:16:08

-After Easter, in the summer,

-people turn to English...

0:16:080:16:12

-..as the default option,

-you know.

0:16:120:16:15

-But I do hear it

-increasingly through the year.

0:16:150:16:19

-Thanks for the chat, Neil.

-It was a pleasure to meet you.

0:16:190:16:23

-After a lovely chat with Reverend

-Neil Fairlamb inside the church...

0:16:240:16:29

-..I went to the beach to emulate

-the children by going crabbing.

0:16:300:16:35

-At the moment, the children

-have caught more than me.

0:16:400:16:44

-I'm obviously happy for them

-but I'd like to catch something.

0:16:440:16:48

-Oh, no!

0:16:520:16:53

-No!

0:16:580:16:59

-OK. Yes. Whoa, stay there.

0:17:070:17:10

-Oh!

0:17:110:17:12

-You forgot your food! Come back!

0:17:130:17:16

-I am enjoying this, I really am.

0:17:190:17:22

-Here's the big moment.

0:17:280:17:30

-Are you ready, loyal viewers of S4C?

0:17:300:17:32

-Nothing at all!

0:17:340:17:35

-If you're at the seaside,

-you have to eat chips.

0:17:420:17:45

-That's what I'm going to do!

0:17:450:17:48

-As well as the chips,

-there are plenty of cafes in town.

0:17:510:17:55

-There are even sophisticated places

-such as the Midland...

0:17:550:18:00

-..offering Spanish tapas.

0:18:000:18:03

-A must-have on any holiday

-is an ice cream.

0:18:100:18:14

-This is the place to come.

0:18:140:18:16

-The Red Boat on Castle Street

-is famous for home-made ice cream.

0:18:160:18:20

-Hiya, OK?

0:18:240:18:25

-There's too much choice.

0:18:260:18:27

-It's between the Jammie Dodger

-and the Bara Brith.

0:18:280:18:31

-Do you want to try them?

0:18:310:18:32

-Do you want to try them?

-

-If I could, that'd be great!

0:18:320:18:34

-The Bara Brith.

0:18:350:18:36

-That tastes like bara brith! Nice.

0:18:400:18:42

-That tastes like bara brith! Nice.

-

-And the Jammie Dodger.

0:18:420:18:44

-It's so hard.

0:18:490:18:50

-As it's a bit sweeter,

-the Jammie Dodger, please?

0:18:500:18:53

-In a plain cone, please.

0:18:530:18:55

-It's a great place to come to relax.

0:18:560:18:58

-As you can see, it's very popular,

-mainly because of the ice cream.

0:18:590:19:04

-It's essentially a cafe,

-with a restaurant upstairs.

0:19:040:19:10

-What a great place.

0:19:110:19:12

-Before leaving Beaumaris, it's worth

-seeing the old court by the castle.

0:19:250:19:30

-The building dates back to 1614.

0:19:300:19:34

-It was used as a court until 1996.

0:19:340:19:38

-It's steeped in history

-and has a wonderful atmosphere.

0:19:380:19:42

-When the rain starts to fall...

0:19:460:19:49

-..you can escape

-to another wet place.

0:19:490:19:52

-The Sea Zoo along the Menai Strait.

0:19:520:19:55

-Apparently, everything I'd see

-in the sea out there...

0:19:560:20:01

-..I can see in here.

0:20:010:20:03

-Even better, I don't need

-a special suit and I won't get wet.

0:20:030:20:07

-We're fortunate to be here today.

0:20:160:20:18

-That turtle was found

-on the shores of the Menai.

0:20:180:20:22

-They hope to keep her here

-for a while before releasing her.

0:20:220:20:26

-They guess that home is West Africa.

0:20:260:20:29

-There's plenty of fun

-to be had at the zoo...

0:20:320:20:35

-..but conservation and education

-are also important.

0:20:350:20:39

-A lobster is usually dark blue

-like our friend in the corner there.

0:20:420:20:47

-But the orange one

-is one in a million.

0:20:470:20:51

-It's remarkable.

0:20:510:20:53

-Seahorses are so enchanting.

0:20:560:20:59

-They move so gracefully

-through the water.

0:20:590:21:03

-They apparently dance

-with their partners every morning.

0:21:030:21:07

-They're the ballerinas of the sea.

0:21:070:21:10

-I've finally caught a crab.

0:21:140:21:16

-My journey ends at Oriel Ynys Mon

-in the company of Ceri Williams.

0:21:190:21:24

-Ceri, thanks for the welcome.

0:21:290:21:31

-What can we see here?

0:21:310:21:33

-The gallery houses

-two separate exhibitions...

0:21:330:21:37

-..one of modern art

-and the Kyffin Williams exhibition.

0:21:370:21:40

-There's also a museum,

-so there's a lot to see here.

0:21:410:21:44

-You could spend a day here.

0:21:450:21:47

-I'm sure Kyffin Williams

-is very popular.

0:21:470:21:50

-He's popular with local people.

0:21:500:21:53

-They recognize his subject matter.

0:21:530:21:57

-They like the familiarity

-of Kyffin's work.

0:21:570:22:00

-What else attracts people here?

0:22:000:22:03

-We have a collection

-of Charles Tunnicliffe's work.

0:22:030:22:06

-His work is incredibly popular

-all over the world.

0:22:070:22:11

-People from the USA and UK

-come to see his work.

0:22:110:22:15

-He attracts a lot of people

-to the gallery.

0:22:150:22:19

-How often

-do you change the exhibits?

0:22:190:22:22

-They're changed every six weeks,

-which is quite challenging.

0:22:230:22:28

-We have to create labels

-and hang the works.

0:22:280:22:31

-But we like having something new

-for people to see.

0:22:310:22:36

-Tell me more

-about the learners' pack.

0:22:360:22:40

-This pack, called Cyffro Celf,

-is available to Welsh learners.

0:22:400:22:46

-It's suitable for all levels.

0:22:460:22:50

-It provides a resource

-for people who are learning Welsh...

0:22:510:22:56

-..to discuss art and learn Welsh

-through the discussion.

0:22:560:23:00

-It also has a list of useful words

-which I use myself.

0:23:010:23:05

-Lots of technical words

-for describing art.

0:23:050:23:08

-"Cyfansoddiad" - composition -

-and "gwead" - texture.

0:23:080:23:12

-I sometimes look in it

-to check I've got the right word.

0:23:120:23:16

-Thanks for the chat, Ceri.

-It's wonderful to be here.

0:23:160:23:20

-I've enjoyed my visit

-to Beaumaris and Anglesey.

0:23:250:23:29

-A perfect combination of history,

-leisure, rain and sunshine.

0:23:300:23:34

-S4C Subtitles by Testun Cyf.

0:23:570:23:59
