The Upper Fall Of The Fender
Photographer: Wilson, George Washington
Medium: Photographic print
"The Falls of the Fender are formed by a streamlet of that name which descends from Ben-y-gloe, and discharges its waters over a rocky chasm into the Tilt. The Upper Falls specially deserve a visit, combining as they do somewhat of the sublime and magnificent.
The stream first appears tumbling amidst trees and rocks, and, being joined by another that darts from the side, throws itself down a steep declivity into a profound hollow, and thence sweeps with reckless velocity down the narrow glen,
'Where rocks are rudely heaped and rent
As by a spirit turbulent.'"
