Still from 'Around Snowdonia'
'Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales, is surrounded by mountain ranges and deep valleys stretching to the sea. "Around Snowdonia" shows the rugged grandeur of the district, and its many places of interest: Conway Castle, once the stronghold of kings; Llandudno, a seaside resort with a pier, promenade and glorious stretches of sand; the Menai Bridge, spanning the Menai Straits and linking Anglesea with the mainland; the Swallow Falls and Llyn-gwynant, the most beautiful lake in Wales; the Dinorwic Slate Quarries, where work has gone on for five hundred years.
The grandeur of Snowdon, its precipitous rock-faces and narrow ridges, impress all who see it. Nor need they climb, unless they want to; a train takes visitors to the summit, and to the unforgettableview to be enjoyed there.' [1]
