taken 9 years ago, 3 km from Nant Peris, Gwynedd, Great Britain

From here on life gets nasty
From here on life gets nasty
Those unwise enough to follow the railway track beyond this point under winter conditions put their own and other people's lives at risk. Not only does the track run along a narrow shelf above sheer cliff face but also its bed is tilted towards the edge of the cliff to facilitate drainage. In winter accumulated snow soon turns to ice and a fall on this ice can lead to a person sliding inevitably towards and over the edge. Almost every year there are fatalities on this stretch. There are ample warning signs, but these are often not heeded.
