Place called Cwmorthin by Blaenau Ffestiniog, it truly is a hidden valley stunning in it's beauty and usually empty 'cept for the odd crow with you can hear it's wings flap accross the valley on still day.

Thats not pleasant, its incredibly spectacular! I live in the Wye valley down south ~ thats pleasant. I always think of the NorthWales walks how stunning in a rugged way they are, and the industrialisation bit of the places just reinforces that...."I say! There's a man on this train wearing brown shoes!"

There is a lovely walk in the lakes - can't remember the name (been many years) - which takes in a lake hidden from view on 3 sides. Very quiet, as its off the beaten path a bit.

The Welsh lakes?

Fair one - missed that this was the Welsh part. I meant the proper Lakes, Cumbria way...

Those crows are generally ravens. Nice place, like France, shame about the people....I have a theory that, while the battles the British fight may differ in the widest possible way, they have invariably two common characteristics - they are fought uphill and always at the junction of two or more map sheets.

Blaenau Ffistifudd twin town is Glamoc, something to do with the high levels of lead in the water not to mention only one bloke getting all the Fathers day cards.
Don't forget your locking wheel nuts and interlocking claymores for the parking above the Lakeside cafe and a add time to visit to the Kebab house on the newly renovated High Street for a Blaenau special.
For anyone rebuilding a Dakota there are still a few bits here http://www.walkingforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=16409.0
