One of several half decent landscape shots taken that winter when we were out surveying in the mountains above Bethesda.

Please close the gate!

Welcome to North Wales

Welcome to North Wales

I was once a little taken aback when I encountered this multi-locked gate up in the welsh hills near Llangollen.  It is not actually as forbidding as at first sight, as it is a gate onto a common that each farmer has access to. You spin the lock plate around and you only really have to open one lock to get on to the mountain 🙂
