About

Alongside our exhibition Land Acts at Oriel Myrddin Gallery, we will be reading Deep Country: Five years in the Welsh hills by journalist Neil Ansell. The tale of five years spent living alone in a cottage on a remote Welsh hillside.

 'I lived alone in this cottage for five years, summer and winter, with no transport, no phone. This is the story of those five years, where I lived and how I lived. It is the story of what it means to live in a place so remote that you may not see another soul for weeks on end. And it is the story of the hidden places that I came to call my own, and the wild creatures that became my society.'

'Touching. Through Ansell's charming and thoroughly detailed stories of run-ins with red kites, curlews, sparrowhawks, jays and ravens, we see him lose himself . . . in the rhythms and rituals of life in the British wilderness' Financial Times

Extraordinary, magical, so powerful’ Independent
