I had a look on the website. It sounds like a great place   to take the kids and Snowdonia is beautiful.

I wonder what happened to the Gypsies?

I know both the Lovell and the Scamp families but I've never heard that tale. Thank you.


I enjoyed this bit.


I began to bump into Uriah more often and he was always a cheerful character, courteous and gentlemanly. I only once saw him about to lose his temper, and really, that was my fault because I was questioning the origins of the Romany gypsies – I thought they had originally come from northern India, but Uriah was adamant that they are from Rome.

In history, the origins of the Romany Gypsies have been notoriously difficult to trace. There are virtually no documents or pieces of literature to tie them to a time or place, with only their language and customs linking them to their past. It was fairly recently discovered that blood groups of Romany Gypsies are very similar to those of tribes from India, and that in fact, the roots of their language can be traced back to the Sanskrit language. It’s thought likely that the Romanies emigrated from India towards the Middle East a couple of thousand years ago. But to Uriah Lovell, the Romanies were Romans and there was no argument.



Most Gypsies before the current 'edumacated' generation had no real knowledge of their origins.

This path is made by cows crossing the field to drink from the stream.

I've been watching them for years now and regardless of their starting point, they always line up single file ln the same order and follow the same meandering trail.

They could walk side by side or approach the stream from a different angle but they never do.

I've noticed this behavior in other animals too. I wonder if it's based on the theory that they didn't get eaten the last time they went this way ergo it must be the safest option?

If that is the case it doesn't work. For instance, it would be impossible to snare rabbits if they didn't use the same runs every time.

The thing that as always fascinated me in animal runs is why don't they go in straight lines, the quickest way surely

You could say that about old stage coach routes as well i suppose

Amazing sheep fact #1

If a sheep tries to  jump over a cattle grid and falls short, getting stuck in the middle, all the other sheep use that one as a springboard to get themselves over.

Amazing sheep fact #2

Sheep in North Yorkshire have learned to cross cattle grids by doing a commando roll.

Amazing sheep fact #3

8% of male sheep have sex exclusively with other male sheep.
