Snowdonia
Highest point in Wales.
Welsh: Eryri Or: Snowdonia National Park – Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri A region of North Wales and a national park, of 838 square miles (2,170km²) in area. It also has 60km of coastline. In 1951 it became the first of three designated National Parks in Wales. The English name for the area derives from Snowdon, which is the highest mountain in Wales, at 1085 metres (3,560 feet). The Wels word Eryri means Highlands. It is commonly assumed however, that it's derived from eryr ('eagle'). Snowdonia is made up of both public and private lands under central planning authority. Almost 70% of it is privately owned. More than 26,000 people live in the park, of whom about 62% speak Welsh. It is the third most visited park in England and Wales. There is a significant amount of agricultural activity in the park. Since the government re-organisation of 1998, the park lies partly in the county of Gwynedd, and partly in the country borough of Conwy. It is governed by the 18-member Snowdonia National Park Authority, 9 of whom are appointed by Gwynedd, 3 by Conwy, and the remaining 6 by the National Assembly of Wales. Snowdonia National Park has a hole in the middle, around the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, a slate quarrying centre. This was deliberatly excluded from the park when it was set up in order to allow the development of new light industry to replace the decimated slate industry.
