I Never Knew That About Wales - Because Its Not True !
on 25 June 2010
I regularly set quizzes in my welsh local, and I thought that this book would be a great little source of questions. The trouble is that it has been carelessly put together, and many of the so-called facts are just plain wrong. Case in point. On the Breconshire page it says that the Brecon Beacons became Wales' first National Park in 1957. Then on the Caernarfonshire pages it says that Snowdonia became a National Park in 1951 ! That's just careless and lazy. There are other examples, but I'm sure you get my drift. The great shame of this is that it is a great idea for a book, but if you do something like this you have to really make an effort to get things right. This is just too slipshod. An opportunity wasted.
