Pistyll Rhaeadr

The Seven Wonders of Wales
Pistyll Rhaeadr and Wrexham steeple,
Snowdon's mountain without its people,
Overton yew trees, St Winefride wells,
Llangollen bridge and Gresford bells.


Pistyll Rhaeadr is a wonderful fall of water is North Wales dropping a greater distance than Niagra Falls. It drops 240 feet from the lip of the falls into a fairy-like dell, covered with beautiful mosses.
The poem above is anonymous but tells of seven wonders to behold in Wales. There are even better ones than this!
The day was dark and damp on the day I took my camera. The camera decided to change the film speed setting to 1400ASA to be able to cope with the darkness ... at least we got something to show.
