Well done Robbie and DVT          $good$


They are depots' along the route of the A5, being roadside alcoves to store grit and materials and were normally just a few hundred yards apart except in the steeper sections when they were closer together.
Apparently they are all on the south or west facing section of the road and you can see many of them on the way to Bethesda

Another easy one.    Where would you see this in North Wales?

It is a nice place Steve and you get a warm welcome when you come into the building.   It's also located in a beautiful location with two beaches, a bit like Llandudno perhaps?

Well done Steve, I bet you worked hard to find that.       $good$

It's Castell Deudraeth    (deudraeth = two beaches )  in Penrhyndeudraeth and we had a delicious lunch there yesterday.
There is an offer on there at present:-
two courses for 20.00
three courses for 25.00
included with the lunch is a ticket to get into Portmeirion which is about half a mile away.  The entry into Portmeirion village is normally 12.00 so the offer is good value

The weather was perfect yesterday so after our three courses we went into the village to have a look around

Many people have walked past this building over the years but where exactly is it in N Wales?

Good try Steve but It's not there.

I'll give you another clue, well half of one anyway!

When I go to Tal Y Bont and pass the pub Y Bedol  I often think of this place

What a good guess too Spotty Dog.      Well done, did Y bedol  ( Pedol = horseshoe ) give it away?


Mrs H and I had a short walk in that area yesterday and the River Dee was in full flow.

The building is the pumping house where the  Llangollen canal starts by the Horseshoe falls
