Dolwyddelan is situated in the Lledr Valley, North Wales. No wedding last Saturday so took the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine with a walk in this beautiful part of the Snowdonia National Park. area. Originally planned a lowish valley walk but a wrong turning at the beginning meant we steadily climbed the hill here. Not that it mattered the views towards Moel Siabod and the Snowdon Horseshoe were worthwhile.

Before we got started on the walk there was a wedding going on in the village in tits tiny welsh chapel, St. Gwyddelan’s Church which dates from about 1500AD, so couldn’t resist chatting with the photographer – she definitely didn’t need a long lens for the church, must have been all of 3 rows deep! The bride lived just down the road and worked in the local pub where a small reception was held afterward. We had a coffee there after our walk and were also given some tea loaf left over from the function, very tasty and very kind. I guess we will return sometime to do the other walk.
