Lledr Valley Production Walk

Alastair Duncan from StillWalks will be doing a StillWalks production walk in the Lledr valley, Snowdonia on Tuesday 26th April. Details of the route and precise starting point can be found here.

Anyone in the area at the time is welcome to stop me in my tracks for a chat and ask any questions. I’ll be starting out from Lledr House Hostel at about 6.30 – 7.00 AM.

Train access to the walk route is available at both Pont-y-Pant and Dolwyddelan stations on the Llandudno to Blaenau Ffestiniog line.

Reviewing the Walk – Snowdonia Recce

This was one of my last views on my recce walk through the Lledr Valley in Snowdonia, North Wales. I didn’t manage to do any field recording on this walk so I am afraid there is no soundscape again this week, but a sequence of selected photos from through the week can be viewed below.

Downhill Through the Woods

Returning to the car on my recce walk this week took me through a section of pinewoods and is not the planned return route for the production walk I hope to do next week. See the event on the website for details of the walk if you are going to be in the area.

The Route to Come

These three photos were taken at the end of my recce walk in the Lledr Valley in Snowdonia, North Wales. They were all taken on my iPhone but I can’t remember why! I processed the second shot in monochrome because it seemed to better represent the wildness of the place as I perceived it in the worsening weather.

Vague Vista

As I climbed above the valley floor along a moss-lined lane, it would have been good to get a better view of the distant mountains around Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales. Alas, on a day such as this, that was never going to be possible.
