Underwater graveyard, Capel Celyn, Wales .Capel Celyn was a rural community to the north west of Bala in Gwynedd, north Wales, in the Afon Tryweryn valley. The village and other parts of the valley were flooded to create a reservoir, Llyn Celyn, in order to supply Liverpool and The Wirral with water for industry. The village contained, among other things, a chapel, as the name of the community suggests, capel being Welsh for chapel.

Dinas Emrys (Welsh: fortress of Ambrosius) Beddgelert, Gwynedd, north-west Wales. It is an example of a hill fort whose fortifications entirely postdate the Roman period. When Vortigern fled into Wales to escape the Anglo-Saxon invaders, he chose this lofty hillfort as the site for his royal retreat.  After Vortigern's downfall, the fort was given to alias Emrys Wledig (Ambrosius Aurelianus), hence its name. Before Dinas Emrys was so-named the fort was known as Dinas Ffaraon.
