Betws Y Coed – Snowdonia

Posted: September 10, 2016 in Wales

Betws Y Coed is a beautiful village in North Wales where the River Conwy meets its three tributaries flowing from the west, the Llugwy, the Lldr and the Machno. Much of it was built in Victorian times and it is the principal village of the Snowdonia National Park.
Set nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains, mature trees <including the infamous giant Douglas Fir>, cascading waterfalls, hill-top lakes, river pools and ancient bridges with a stunning 14th century church of St Michael’s which is one of the oldest in the country.

Pont-y-Pair (the bridge of the cauldron) in the centre of the village was built in 1468 and provides amazing photo opportunities of the cascading water and rapids. At the far end of the village is the Thomas Telford’s iron Waterloo Bridge built in 1815 another notable place for a photo

    The pictures are beautiful. Praying daily for your safety. May God continue to bless you and protect you!
    We had a hurricane come over our property September 1st at 1:00 AM. Friday morning the property looked terrible. Thursday it was beautiful. None of our buildings got damaged. We have been working hard. Around our house and farm shelter all is clean and the grass is cut. We have cleaned up the S/W of our property. Today we will start on our N/W section. We have 3 big trees down and two that have the tops out of them. We burned all the stuff from the S/W section. We have a lot more hard work to get the place looking good again.
