Carn-Yr-Arian / Fieldnotes by mattbotwood

That's great Matt, thanks for posting the link here. I'm not really a fan of these dense modern forests, but this certainly gives atmosphere to the site at present. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Its a fine looking bullaun stone Ryaner. Livestock are a bit funny this time of year so definitely good to be wary. bawn79 Posted by bawn79

It's been there a few years now, but fairly recent. There were a couple of other people but the wind was something else, gusts up to 100mph that day, so no-one was lingering! thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

The National Trust sign looks like a new addition to when I was up there last. Nice moody sky and not a soul to be seen ! Meic Posted by Meic

Thanks George, I do recall this phenomena being talked about before but couldn't remember what it was called.

PS: Have just noticed your succinct field note.

Everything seems to work so smoothly. That is a fine website isn't it. The search button could be a tad more obvious maybe! but at least it works nicely when you find it. Excellent Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

The views are fantastic - shame it was so overcast and cloudy today, it washed out the views of Crookhaven. Meic Posted by Meic

Shire Ditch / News by credashill

That sounds dreadful. Especially the building/shop idea. Doesn't exactly enhance Snowdon, which is rather bigger. Worcester Beacon isn't a very big summit, it would be way too busy.

There's plenty of cafes in town anyway.

Maen Llia / Fieldnotes by mattbotwood

There will certainly be a lot of my footprints up there, but when I'm visiting to take images I try to stay away from the base of the stone in those conditions. Posted by mattbotwood

Thanks very much :)

Apparently this stone was re-erected by one of the vicars there.

It was absolutely freezing. We made for the warmth of the pub after this, as we had almost an hour until the bus and would've died of hypothermia!
