I live in north Wales, UK. A very beautiful part of the world, as I hope you can see from my photographs. I travel around the area quite a lot, taking pictures at every opportunity. I'd like to be using more expensive kit, but the Fuji camera family is doing a reasonable job for now. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed taking them. If you've never been to north Wales, what are you waiting for? Paul.

Paul Jones's conversations

Wow! thanks for taking the time to let me know Paul.

I've just found the name of this site, apparently it's one of the six 'holy wells' on Ynys Cybi. I don't know where the other five are though! Anyone with more info?

'This is the site of the Drws y Coed independent chapel, demolished by this rock on February 17th 1892' Or words to that effect!

Thank you everyone

Thanks for the info. It's taken over 700 views for someone to comment. Now I've looked into it, I've found this was part of the 'Western Command Stop Line 21' Which extended from Rhyl to Machynlleth. A small quarry was opened in the vicinity to provide the blocks, which are about 1.5m x 1.7m in size. Source http://www.rcahmw.gov.uk/media/469.pdf

Known as 'Roman Camp' this woodland has no evidence of actual Roman occupation though.

This is known as the Britannia Bridge, and is the NEWER of the two bridges. It was built by Robert Stephenson, the son of the famous engineer George Stephenson, in 1846-1850. Originally it was only a railway crossing, the upper 'road' deck only being added in 1980. The Menai Suspension bridge, commonly referred to as 'The Menai Bridge' was built by Thomas Telford in 1819-1826.

Once the biggest slate mine in the world, Penrhyn Quarry is now host to the fastest zip wire in the world & the longest in the northern hemisphere. It is just under a mile long & speeds of over 100Mph can be achieved under the right conditions.

The world's biggest 'Zip Zone' Consisting of three sets of four wires. This is the first, longest, and slowest, of the three. The landing point is the 'omega' shape spot in the distance.

You're a bit off-target for Cwm Idwal. You've placed your marker at Penrhyn Quarry.
