Capel Garmon

Chambered Cairn


Capel Garmon means (unsurprisingly) 'chapel of Garmon' in Welsh. As yet I've not been able to establish who Garmon was, so perhaps someone out there can tell me.

If you want to hear the name being pronounced in an authentic (north Welsh) accent, there's a WAV file available on the Betws-y-Coed Web site:
