Conwy Falls has been voted as Landmark of the Year by readers of BBC Countryfile Magazine.
This is fantastic news, as the stunning falls and gorge will doubtless receive a load more national coverage as a result.
Plummeting 15m into a cavernous pool, Conwy Falls in the heart of Snowdonia National Park has long been a popular site for visitors. The surrounding woodlands are imbued with magic and wildlife, including polecats and a wide variety of birdlife, while the River Conwy itself is a salmon river and the enchanting gorge of the Fairy Glen is just a short distance away.
Interestingly, the nominations were put forward by former director-general of the National Trust, Dame Fiona Reynolds. Now would be a great time to write to the National Trust.

Would you want to be the engineer who has to put forward the proposal to destroy “Landmark of the Year 2017”?
