Those who like to put on waterproof jackets and go walking in Snowdonia may be interested to know there is still time to take part in a public consultation about the possibility of more overhead power lines appearing in the national park.

National Grid's enquiry over the issue of where to situate power cables from the new Wylfa C power plant on Anglesey is due to end on January 24th and the Snowdonia Society portal has issued a web link for those who want their say.

It connects to the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England website, through which an e-card can be sent to National Grid.

The Snowdonia Society wants the cables to be situated under the sea, so views across north Wales are not affected by more metal structures.

It noted there are already 2,100 pylons in Britain's national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Overhead pylons in Snowdonia include a line running through a gap between Tal Y Fan and the northern end of the Carneddau ridge, near Rowen.
