Neither of us saw a trace of the wonderful glacial phenomena around us, …a house burnt down by fire did not tell its story more plainly than did this valley. — Charles Darwin 1831
The commemorative slate panel, featuring quotations from Charles Darwin and Evan Roberts, was commissioned by the Countryside Council for Wales, the Snowdonia National Park Authority, and the National Trust, and is mounted on the wall of the interpretive centre next to Ogwen Cottage. This location, at the western end of Llyn Ogwen, marks the start of the path to Cwm Idwal.
Cwm Idwal was the first National Nature Reserve in Wales, receiving this official designation from the Nature Conservancy Council in 1954. Before becoming its first warden, Evan Roberts had worked at Rhos Quarry.
