Aerial view (looking east) of the valley in the Cambrian Mountains where the abbey was eventually built

This aerial photograph, taken by Toby Driver in 2012, shows the area of the Abbey precincts looking eastwards up the valley towards the Cambrian Mountains. The precinct is well picked out by the green fields in the middle of the photograph. These are some of the best agricultural fields in the area, still drained by the monks' engineering of the Afon Glassffrwd running on the edge of the Abbey Wood on the right (south) of the precinct.
