Cool Runnings - water and trains
No Snowdonia garden would be complete without water features. No need for pond liners, just a never ending supply of water running off the mountain.
In this garden a stream enters at the top and splits into several branches. One feeds a series of five cascading ponds. Another feeds the big pond we dug for when we kept ducks.
Water enters and leaves some of the ponds by mini-waterfall.
All the streams converge into one, just before the old barn, where the water used to drive a wheel for turning a churn to make butter.
This place has one other very special water feature - steam, which sends the trains to and fro across the top of the garden.
