52/2013 Week 31

Abandoned Cottage

High up on the wild and windy Mynydd Hiraethog (also known as the Denbigh Moors) I found this old abandoned cottage just waiting to be photographed. The moor is an upland region in Conwy and Denbighshire in north-east Wales. it includes the large reservoirs, Llyn Brenig and Llyn Alwen, and the Clocaenog Forest, which has one of Wales’s last populations of red squirrels. Its highest point is Mwdwl-eithin, at 532 metres (1,745 ft) above sea level, making it higher than Exmoor

    what an interesting place. I really like the barren look of the hill with the lone tree. That old cottage holds all sorts of memories. Beautiful shot.

      Very isolated though Yvonne. There was only me and the sheep up there….amazing views though across the valley to the Snowdonia mountains

    It’s just waiting for a patient hand to resort it!

      Don’t know if that will ever happen….seems like the farmer is using it for storage
