History for All


button_lang_welshBritish Sign Language video clips, with voiceover and subtitles, are appearing on HistoryPoints web pages to widen access to on-the-spot historical information. British Sign Language (BSL) is a recognised language which has a very different structure to both Welsh and English and is the preferred language of many people who are deaf or experiencing sensory loss.

You can view the videos on smartphones or tablets by scanning the HistoryPoints QR codes at each of the locations listed below. Or you can view them at home on your desktop or laptop computer.

The first videos are focused on sites of interest within the walled town of Conwy. They're being produced by the Centre for Sign Sight Sound in Colwyn Bay as part of the Trilingual Culture Centre Project, which will also provide accessible signage and lighting in the Culture Centre now under construction in Conwy. The project was organised by Conwy County Borough Council with funding from LEADER, the Rural Development Programme for Conwy, and other partners.
