Historic background

The pre-modern focus of the valley, in which the village of Nant Peris is situated, the original Llanberis.

Key historic landscape characteristics

Settlement, field boundaries

The village itself is barely nucleated, though the church, on the valley floor, forms an evident focus. The area is made up partly of large irregular enclosures on the mountain sides to the north-east and meadows on the valley floor. There is little enclosure on the steeper slopes to the south-west. The road built in the 1830s from Llanberis to Pen y Pass, itself probably an improvement to an existing trackway, runs through the area.
