In 1983 me and Mrs. Moonbase moved to Snowdonia in North Wales so I could study Countryside Management at Bangor. Whilst there I discovered what was probably the most dramatic single place I had ever seen, Cwm Idwal.
As part of a short break this week and seeking inspiration for a new Sarge storyline we visited Cwm Idwal again on Monday! Imagining mountain SWORD wars I took these short video clips as a reminder of our visit.

Welsh 101: cwm = corrie, cirque [birthplace of glaciers], Llyn = lake
Cwm Idwal is on the Nant Ffrancon pass, Snowdonia, Gwynedd.
