Heads Of The Valley Road Part 2 (Summer 2013)

I had meant to have come back last Friday with this post but things had been a little icky n the house by the sea and I really was in no state to finish this post.  So here I am a week later than planned.  A fortnight a go we were at point 4 on the map below.


Here are a few more photos at point 4 which which stopped a couple of times along the road to take.





Then we came to the road right above the dam:





Then we went down to the layby right alongside the Dam where there is a lovely viewing platform and cafe.



We stayed here for nearly an hour taking in all the views.  Below is the old Lead Mine (point 6) right at the bottom of the Dam:


Well earned snack stop and amazing homemade cakes:




The Girl practiced her Welsh and left a message in the visitors book.  We then set off to the old Lead mines at the bottom of the Dam.

As this is quite a photo heavy post with all the stops we made, I have split our adventure in to 3 posts.  I will share the final installment next Friday.  The first installment can be found here.

Linking up with Coombe Mill for Country Kids.

Stunning scenery. I love that the kids are learning Welsh, I bet it's a fairly hard language to learn. Hope you are feeling better. Deb x
