Land patterns around Lon Garret viewed from the main Dinorwig road
This view shows the enclosures made on the mountain side on either side of the Garret road by quarrymen-farmers in the early 19thC. The houses above the road, [Lon Garret crosses left-right across the middle of the photograph], are now all abandoned though the land is still farmed, albeit only by only one farmer. The farm buildings of the modern farm are seen in the foreground
