Mountain Thoughts

During the past few weeks I’ve been doing a lot of work in some of Wales’ upland areas, reviewing management options for conservation of habitats and species, and monitoring the effects of grazing on huge areas of common land.  It’s been getting pretty cold and wet, and the upland terrain is hard on the feet and legs, and all I was doing was walking.  It made me wonder about the hardiness of the people who built these walls 🙂

On the day I took this photo I imagined two new tunes, both pretty good as I recall.  By the time I got home I couldn’t remember them.  They’re gone.  One of the pitfalls of never learning to write music down.  Oh well maybe they’ll return to me in a more convenient place and time.

Eglwys y Grog, Mwnt, West Wales

A medieval sailor’s chapel of ease dating to the 14th Century on a lonely headland on the West Wales coast.  If you look in the centre of the picture below you can just make out the white gable end above the beach. This place, Mwnt (pronounced munt), is also the site of an unsuccessful Flemish invasion in 1155 and its defeat was long afterwards celebrated on the first Sunday in January as “Sul Coch y Mwnt” (Red Sunday of Mwnt), as a consequence of the bloodshed on that day.
