Stone Bridge
Stone bridge near Watkin Path. Edward Watkin created a path from the quarry to the Snowdon summit the first designated footpath in Britain, and the first step towards opening the countryside to walkers. The path was officially opened in 1892 by the Prime Minister William Gladstone, who was 83 years old at the time. He addressed a crowd of over 2000 people from a rock on the side of the path, which is known today as the Gladstone Rock. This is thought to be one of the most hard going paths up Snowdon, as it starts only a little above sea level. The path starts off wide and quite even, but becomes rocky towards the second half, and then crosses loose scree. This location was used as the Khyber Pass in the well known film Carry on up the Khyber.
