Why, Why, Why! Cwm Dyli-LA! No ratings yet.

Will there be a welcome in the hillside for Sir Tom Jones? An undisclosed source has revealed that Sir Tom might be the mystery buyer behind a rumoured public land sell off a 5000 acre plot of land between Cwm Caregog, Cwm Clogwyn and Cwm Brwynog on the slopes of Snowdon! Surprising perhaps, but Its Not Unusual for a famous Welshman to reach for the wallet to protect our natural landscape and follows in the footsteps* of Sir Anthony Hopkins who Once Upon a Time donated cool £1 million to secure parts of Snowdon in 1998.

With the UK government stripping public body budgets down to the bone, there have been some suggesting they should be making better use of their natural assets, some even suggesting they should be selling parts of National Parks! Helvellyn was recently sold in the Lakes, so is it any wonder that Snowdon could be the next to go?

She’s a Lady (Of Snowdon)

If Sir Tom was to buy Snowdon he would not only be the proud owner of the highest point in his beloved county of birth, Wales. He would also Help Himself to the highest cafe, the highest steam train line and a whole heap of green green grass of home! Its thought that although he hails from South Wales, Sir Tom fell in love with the area when he performed in Eirias Park, Colwyn Bay last summer even though he’s quoted as saying that he’ll Never Fall in Love Again.

Currently a judge on the hit show The Voice, Sir Tom might be looking for a pad to crash while filming in the UK, and transforming the summit cafe to a Tony Stark style complex would outdo anything a Beverly Hills mansion could offer? Though in comparison baby, it’s cold[er] outside. We’re sure that if he gets new carpets, you’ll have to remove your muddy shoes but you can leave your hat on…

As you can tell the news has sent the Mud and Routes pun generator into overdrive!

*surely you mean stealing his Thunder-ball? –ED
