Carnedd Dafydd, Carneddau

SH 66142 62941; 53.14672°N, 4.00290°W

Information

With an elevation of 1044 m, Carnedd Dafydd is the fourth highest peak in Wales (when Garnedd Ugain in the Snowdon massif is included). The name of the mountain means David’s Cairn, probably in honour of Dafydd ap Gruffudd, younger brother of the last independent prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd. Dafydd was captured in 1283 and taken to Shrewsbury where he was hanged, drawn and quartered.

Trial Asbestos Mine, Moel yr Ogof

Looking out across Beddgelert Forest towards Snowdon from just above the trial

Date

26 March 2011
Location

Moel yr Ogof, Beddgelert

SH 55955 47810; 53.00815°N, 4.14831°W

Information

The trial asbestos mine is located close to Owain Glyndwr’s Cave on Moel yr Ogof on the south western edge of Beddgelert Forest. The trial extends back some seven or eight metres, following a seam of white asbestos. Water percolates through the working and so the vein is very damp, rendering the mineral somewhat soft and gungy.
