Aberdulais Tinworks and Waterfall

Sunday 24th May 2015

When I was planning the camping trip to South Wales for last weekend, I had a look for any National Trust properties within the local area. You see, as much as I enjoy walking, I found last year that it was nice to spend a little time doing something different.

Aberdulais Tinworks and Waterfall (or Aberdulais Falls, as it’s also known) was less than a five-minute drive from our campsite.

High on a Hill

Meditation has become something that is quite significant within my life. It’s not something I practice as often as I feel I should and I find I am at my best when I’m at a centre with a dedicated time and space for meditation. But last Sunday, I created a bit of a ‘revelation’ for myself in being able to meditate high on top of one of the Mendip Hills.

Meditating up on Crook Peak, Somerset.
