Foel Fadian and intervening valleys
The viewpoint north east of Foel Fadian is the Wynford Vaughan Thomas Memorial. The memorial was constructed there, not because he had connections with the area, but because he felt that the view from here towards Snowdon was the best in Wales and the centre section is toposcope looking out over the rolling hills and mountains of Wales, with a depiction of Vaughan-Thomas pointing towards Snowdon, Wales' highest peak, which is just visible on a clear day.
