Moraine beneath Craig-y-fro
Moraine beneath Craig-y-fro
This low bracken-covered ridge is interpreted as a moraine formed by a small glacier which nestled under the cliffs of Craig-y-fro at the end of the last ice age. Geologists still debate its exact origins - there may also have been some landslipping contributing to the nature of the hummocky ground in this area.
