A canal was constructed from this point on the River Wensum that allowed the stone imported from Caen in Normandy to be transported to the site on which Norwich Cathedral was built in the C11th and C12th.

Is it true (as H.V.Morton claimed in his 'In Search of Wales', 1932) that Clynogg Fawr meant 'a hiding place'? Even before Dr Beeching's report I believe no railway ever got close to it!

I hope the trolley-buses are still using the overhead lines! That form of transport has sadly disappeared from the UK.

Thanks K.S! greets, Ed

Hi Bob, could I re-post this splendid shot (credited and linked) on Flickr to show the area where I took a small series of photos back in 1972? They were of my g.f. climbing up from the shore after a "skinny dip" on a hot day (we had no swimsuits with us). The photos are on Flickr. Or you could post it there yourself and I could link it directly… Many thanks, Jonathan
