Abandoned North Wales

Okay, so these are the abandoned buildings shots from my trip to wales. There were several abandoned cars too, which I wanted to snap, but a navigation error on my part lopped out the important part of the A470 on the way back.

The image quality isn't great, nor's the framing to be honest. They're quickly shot digital camera shots, quite a lot of the shot in heavy rain - some of them got deleted because the rain was so heavy you could barely make out the object being photographed!

Near Plas Gwynant; I think. Sadly the rain made most of these photos unusable.

There were several buildings, or ex buildings around this patch; one still standing but too far into the woods for my camera (even with flash) to get even a single shot in the deluge; this one appears to have been leveled deliberately; bits of it lie on either side of the footpath.

In this one you can see the upended remains of a range / stove; sadly the lighting was terrible; but on the underside you could make out that it still had the covers for the hot-plates; the fuzzy gunky stuff on the side was once insulation.

These shots were all taken around the various tracks up to Mt Snowden; particularly around Llyn Llydaw and Glasyln. The area was once home to a copper mining I think, also there's been an awful lot of quarrying over the years.

This last shot was taken near Beddgelert - it's in line with a bridge over the road and a rather abruptly ending embankment - visible here as a road crossing the A4085 just below Beddgelert. I've no idea what it was. My first guess of being related to a bridging structure seems unlikely, 'cos the walls are so thin....

You can see two parallel lines leading to it in the field in this arial photo, too.
