Engineering and Architecture

Electric Mountain, aka Dinorwic Power Station, Llanberis, is a triumph of vision and engineering. Perfect for a rainy day. Clough William-Ellis’s Italianate village at Portmeirion and the Dwyryd estuary it overlooks (particularly when the tide is out and you can walk on the sands) are a treat. Instead of spending his whole time trying to escape, we never understood why Patrick McGoohan’s Prisoner didn’t just buy an ice cream and admire the view.
