Historic background

This character area actually comprises two separate portions, one on each side of the valley, which were sheepwalks associated with the farms on the floor of Nant Ffrancon. Lying between the Telford and Lord Penrhyn roads (at the bottom) and the unenclosed mountains above, they were formerly part of the Penrhyn estate and are now owned by the National Trust.
