    Default Moel Fammau (CTG)

    Moel Fammau

    The way we pronounced it, us Scouse boys
    on our cycle trips to wildest Wales:

    Mo Vammah! As if it was an action star,
    hero of sixpenny movie matinees, instead

    of a slope-shouldered mountain crowned
    with a ruined memorial to George III.

    Mo Vammah! Kept in our sights as we cycled on.
    Mo Vammah! Target for all of our lives to come.

    I remember walking to the top of it and back when staying at Colomendy on a school trip.

    Did you know Chris that the name of these mountains relates to their similarity in shape to female breasts !! Roughly translated it means Mothers Hill
