An exhibition has opened showing the links between National Trust-owned Penrhyn Castle in Bangor, Gwynedd, and the slave trade.
Richard Pennant, the MP for Liverpool, married Anne Susanna Warbuton the heiress to Penrhyn Castle in 1765. Pennant had 5,000 slaves in Jamaica.
Marking the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade, the exhibition includes work from pupils at schools in Gwynedd and Jamaica.
Project coordinator Hilary McLaughlin said people found it interesting to see history through the eyes of children.
"We've set out the exhibition so that people come in and read the history, read about the community and then see the future through the children's work," said Ms McLaughlin.

Visitor Samantha Jones, from Cambridge, found the exhibition interesting but seeing the neck shackles and monkey flail (used to subdue slaves in transport) was "disturbing."

The exhibition at Penrhyn Castle runs until November and it is hoped that an educational DVD will be produced later.
