The Something Vloggy CADW Challenge.
We aim to VISIT and MAKE A FILM about all 130 Properties in the care of CADW, spread across the length and breadth of Wales, IN ONE YEAR. Castles, Forts, Roman, Prehistoric, Religious, Historic Industrial, Historic Houses, and Palaces to name but a few.
To keep up with our progress we have made this handy map:

Q & A
Q. WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?
A. We love Wales, we love a bit of history, and we love making films. We consider ourselves very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world and want nothing more than to share our good fortune with you. So what better way for you to see as much of it as possible through us undertaking some daft and difficult challenge?
Q. WHO OR WHAT ARE CADW?
A. CADW is the Welsh Government’s historic environment service. Put another way, it is the body that looks after sites of historical importance in Wales. Think of them as the Welsh Version of English Heritage and you won’t go far wrong. You can visit their website HERE.
Q. WHERE CAN I SEE THE FILMS?
A. Right HERE on the Something Vloggy Website, or if you prefer you can just watch them on our YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/SomethingVloggy
Q. HOW DOES ALL THIS GET PAID FOR?
A. Well, that’s a thorny question. In part, we get money from our Patreon Patrons. Then there is a tiny amount of money from the adverts on the website. Then there are the last of our savings that we have gambled on creating this project and the lifestyle that entails. In short, we live frugally and hope like crazy that we get enough patrons to cover our costs before our savings run out.
