Join us as we explore some of North Wales' hidden gems. We will be walking some of the most beautiful trails in the country and reporting on news, events and activities; both weird and wonderful. We will be trying and testing activities you might not have known North Wales has to offer, some within our comfort zone and others which are very far out!

A Bridge too far?
This is the Aberglaslyn bridge at Nantmor. It carries the A4085 over the river Glaslyn and I took our French journalists to see it on our way back to Manchester Airport.
Upstream of this bridge is a magnificent run of water torrent through rocks-completely impassable by river transport
Downstream of the bridge is a navigable river and, before the Portmadog cob was built, this river was used to transport slate across the estuary of the Glaslyn river and down to the sea.
