Wales Warnings and Dangers

  • Warning if your near the sea

    Pictures say a Thousand Words!! Unfortunately on VT we now have to write 200 letters to make it a tip! So If you are driving near the sea on a road, Pier or some kind of cliff take note of the signs as you could just fall off! In fact you don't even have to be driving you could just be walking along minding your own business and just step off the...

  • The sheep

    There are more sheep in Wales than people. Thats about 11 million sheep to 3 million people.They jump over fences, they roam the hills, they meander out of farmhouse gardens, they nibble grass on the roadside verges. So take care when driving. If you happen across a group of sheep staring at you whilst out walking, walk briskly towards them...

  • Look out for Druids

    Almost invisible by day, Celtic druids still live in the local population in Anglesey. Be courteous when talking to local people. You never know.The Roman historian Tacitus and Emperor Nero, told the world that Anglesey was the last bastion of Druidical activity, they tried to conquer them, but many hid in the hills and survive to this day on Cawl...

  • Dim baeddu

    The local council in my manor are having a bit of a clamp down on dog fouling. So much so that on a lamppost in my street they have put a sign to say that dog fouling is prohibited. I noticed that the notice / sticker on the lamppost is quite low down I guess that this is so that it is eye level with the dog so your mutt can actually read the...

  • The roads

    As with in England probably the only part I didn't like were the roads! So long and thin often with stone walls or hedges that prevented two cars passing safely. I am not big into reversing at the best of times let alone under pressure. Probably the worst part for me was you would spot some things you wanted to have a better look at but there was...

  • Traffic warning

    This is a light-hearted entry. The photo is a warning seen on a fence post. I asked a local what it said, and he said "DRIVERS!"But, there is real danger from dangerous drivers. Coming through Snowdonia we were held up by a horse carrer . We were aboutfour cars behind him. Then from out of nowhere a youth forced his way between us and the car in...

  • British food

    If you're travelling in Wales (or England, or Ireland, ...) and you're trying to watch your waistline you should definitely not try to achieve this goal by ordering vegetarian meals. I had to find out that the vegetarian menus, in most cases, are way more greasy than the "normal" food.

  • SPEED CAMERAS !

    Speed Cameras are evil. There is no reasoning with them and they do work, all too effectively. There are about 6,000 speed cameras on UK roads – and the numbers are growing. They are both fixed and mobile. At the very least you usually do get a waning sign. If you do see a camera sign, SLOW DOWN! Below are the different types of mechanical beasts...

  • The Weather

    Have you ever been to those places where people say "you should have been here last week, it was glorious" - well no one ever said that while I was in Wales.It was November though, so I suppose you can't expect miracles, but when it rains it really does rain.As a consequence the road conditions can get pretty bad - so extreme care is needed in bad...

  • Weather

    Certain parst of Anglesey can be very exposed and the weather can turn in an instant if you must camp in a remote or exposed spot make sure your tent is strong and is properly secure. Dont have it blown down like us!!!

  • Most polluted place outside of London

    The South Wales town of Port Talbot is the most polluted place in Wales, according to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Extremely high levels of soot, dust, smoke, fumes and diesel emissions have been measured here!All this is a result of decades of heavy industry built on the narrow strip of flat land between the South Wales coast and the...

  • Sheep in the road

    To explore Wales more fully, we drive off the beaten path at every opportunity. The roads become narrower and in many places are only just one car width wide. There are passing places of course, but care must be taken on the many bends to ensure there isn't someone coming the other direction just around the corner.Wales is famous for sheep. The...

  • Beware of small country roads!

    One rarely hears about driving in Wales. As scenic as some of the roads may be, driving on them can be a nightmare. Having done a lot of backroad driving in the Tanat Valley and around Llansannan, I must issue a sincere warning about the smaller roads there and the way locals are driving on them. There are many single lane backroads differing from...

  • Beware the Welch head hunters

    On some remote locations in Wales you could find yourself being the main course of a welch culinary delicacy. For centuries explores have warned us about remote welch villages where the practice of killing and eating foreigners is still observed. To this day this is still true.
