Work Starts on Mountain Rescue Base

The first work on the new Mountain Rescue Base for Aberglalsyn MRT started today.

Following a period of cloudy but warm weather, site preparation work started on the Team's new base on a bright day. The day provided some great photographic opportunities.

The base will become home to the Team, who have not had a permanent, dedicated, building for some 10 years. A building is vital to protect the team's equipment and act as a training and meeting venue. Operationally, it will be invaluable, acting as the hub of many rescue operations.

As you would expect, funding this is a great challenge, and any donations would be gratefully accepted by the team - details at

The team is very grateful for the donations from corporate & individual donors, NatWest Community Force and the support of Balfour Beatty & Jones Brothers during the construction of the Porthmadog by-pass.
