George Borrow s tour & early lady visitors to Snowdonia

Post by QuentinDeakin »

Quentin and Liz Deakin continued the theme of visitors to Snowdonia, the subject of Michael Freeman’s November lecture. Quentin gave a brief talk on the subject of George Borrow’s tour of Wales and with Liz performed two light-hearted scenes of his own composition, one of Borrow’s ascent of Snowdon with his step-daughter Henrietta and the second depicting his stay at Ponterwyd at what is now called the George Borrow Hotel after this famous author of Wild Wales. Liz followed with a short talk on lady visitors to Snowdonia based on diaries from the late eighteenth century to the coming of the railways.
