High above the Welsh town of Llangollen at the summit of the Horseshoe pass, is our shop within the Ponderosa Cafe and Horseshoe Pass Complex.


It is said that on a clear day you can sometimes see forever.  But when the rain rolls in off the sea some 20 miles to the north, thick clouds shroud the mountainside.


Then the air is heavy with the scents of wet heather, grouse clatter on the upland slopes and disoriented sheep bleat mournfully to each other through the mist.


A strange place indeed to have a shop, but then it is no ordinary shop!
