First a few links for those that are interested in a little history.

Welcome to Harlech

Men of Harlech  A version of this tune was us in the movie “Zulu” (1964)

Lyrics  Various version’s of the above song.

Has can be seen it was a warm day but great for biking, so arriving at the car park has usual there is no motorcycle parking provided. So a no parking area was used and it frees up a couple of car parking places. Just has we parked up another couple from Germany pulled in along side us.Wales-1-8.JPG

Cable locks secure the helmets to the bikes and with my panniers empty I store my riding gear in them making it more comfortable to walk around in the heat. Into the castle entrance which can be seen in the above photo. With our wallets a little lighter it was across the foot bridge into the castle.

There is going to be another part of the trip through the Peak District and up into the Yorkshire Dales but that is another post.

Hope you enjoyed the trip in Wales, it’s a beautiful country with unpronounceable place names and the people warm and friendly. That’s my third time staying in Wales and not my last. If you ever get the chance come and see Wales you will not be disappointed.

Thank you for joining me on this short tour and I happy to bring you along.

George.
