A walk
Conwy Valley Ramblers & Coleridge in Wales Festival.

Coleridge walked Penmaenmawr mountain, on the North Wales coast, on a scorching hot day in 1794. They forgot to take water on the climb. A few years later, when writing the great poem Rime of The Ancient Mariner, he vividly remembered the experience and wrote the words:

Water, water everywhere
And all the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere
Nor any drop to drink

Come and share sea views that inspired Coleridge and explore prehistoric places behind Penmaenmawr. Some steep parts but a gentle pace; bring a picnic (and water!).

Yng Nghymru dechreuodd Coleridge ymrwymo yn frwd am y tro cyntaf gyda gwylltineb natur. Cadarnhaodd y daith ei yrfa fel artist. Roedd llinellau enwog The Rime of the Ancient Mariner wedi’u hysbrydoli wrth ddringo i fyny mynydd Penmaenmawr yng ngogledd Cymru ar ddiwrnod poeth.
