During 2015-16, I decided to build a wall to celebrate the wealth of old names of pools on our local rivers, as part of our responsibility as wardens to safeguard and promote an understanding of our rich cultural heritage.

The Snowdon Race is a big day for Llanberis and the surrounding area each year.
