Roving in Wales
The Cox family, who have lost their hearts to Wales, motor from Dolgellau in Gwynedd to Red Wharf Bay on Anglesey, and Smut the dog comes too.
From the collection of:
A Cox family party motors through Gwynedd - taking in the sights and delights of Dolgellau, Barmouth, Fairbourne, Arthog, Tal-y-bont, Dyffryn Ardudwy, Llanbedr, Maentwrog, Tan-y-bwlch, Borth-y-gest (where fish and chips are consumed on the beach) - and on to Anglesey. Harold Cox, who shot the footage, was a knitter of note and ran a music business in Birmingham. He and his brother had neighbouring bungalows built in Dyffryn Ardudwy for holidays and eventual retirement.
