"Puff The Vomiting Dragon", Greenmeadow Community Farm. Cwmbran  23 May 2015
This dragon was relocated from the Ebbw Vale Garden Festival held in 1992. Counter balanced, his head has water pumped into it when a movement sensor is activated, causing water to cascade from his mouth. Originally the area around him was unfenced, allowing children to shriek with pleasure when he "vomited" over them. Today, possibly for 'elf 'n safety reasons, this is fenced off.

Greenmeadow Community Farm, once private, was taken over by the local council and, for many years leased to a tenant farmer. Today it is council run as a Community Farm. Unfortunately, many traces of the adjacent Cwmbran Colliery were erased in the process of establishing the farm.

Those wings don't seem big enough for the rest of him.

He's evolved into a terrestrial dragon with vestigial wings.
