Castell Conwy

27 Oct 2016 5 12 218
Conwy Castle (Welsh: Castell Conwy, English: Conway Castle) is a medieval fortification in Conwy, on the north coast of Wales. It was built by Edward I, during his conquest of Wales, between 1283 and 1289. Constructed as part of a wider project to create the walled town of Conwy, the combined defences cost around £15,000, a huge sum for the period. UNESCO considers Conwy to be one of "the finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe", and it is classed as a World Heritage site

Cnicht is a mountain in North Wales. There used to be a lot of slate mines in the area, and the slate waste was ideal for jobs like building this fence!

Ynys-y-Pandy-slate-mill, Cwmystradllyn

20 Dec 2016 7 8 232
Site Description The impressive three-storeyed Ynys-y-pandy slate processing works, which served the Gorseddau Quarry, was built in 1856-7 by Evan Jones of Garndolbenmaen and probably designed by James Brunlees. It is ingeniously planned so that the natural fall of the site assisted the manufacturing process. A deep trench inside accommodated a large overshot water wheel (26 ft, 8m in diameter), and on the south side a long curving ramp brought branches of the tramway from Gorseddau Quarry into the mill at two different levels, serving the middle and upper floors. The grand, round-headed openings are closely spaced like a Roman aqueduct. The eastern gable is surmounted by a decorative feature incorporating a false shimney stack, and the west gable windows have at some time had window frames or shutters. Otherwise the construction is bold and plain but none the less impressive.

Castell Harlech

24 May 2009 9 14 208
Remember the great victory in the battle of Rorke's Drift.... Men of Harlech stop your dreaming Can't you see their spear points gleaming See their warrior's pennants streaming To this battle field. Men of Harlech stand ye steady It cannot be ever said ye For the battle were not ready Stand and never yield. From the hills rebounding Let this war cry sounding Summon all at Cambria's call The mighty force surrounding. Men of Harlech onto glory This shall ever be your story Keep these fighting words before ye Cambria (Welshmen never) will not yield".
