RAINIEST SPOT IN THE KINGDOM
Snowdon and the neighbouring Welsh hills, about the rainiest spot in the kingdom, felt the full effects of the rainstorm. Sweeping down from the mountain sides, the floods filled the rivers, and the valleys were generally under water. Beddgelert Bridge, an historic Norman structure, was swept away. Water covered the village church floor, and also the post office, to a depth of some feet.
