Gwenhwyfar "Gwenhwyfar, the Welsh Goddess, is believed to have existed as long as there has been surf to pound against rocky shores. Praised for her wise judgement, it was prophesied that no man could rule Wales without her by his side." She is also known as Guinevere, or Gueneva. Her name means "White Shadow" or "White One" which is another name for a Fairy Goddess. - Wiccan Moonsong

Sgwd Yr Eira, Wales. One of several spectacular waterfalls found in the Mellte Valley in the Brecon Beacons, Sgwd Yr Eira, meaning "fall of snow," can be reached from the car park at the Porth yr Ogof cave, where the river disappears underground, or from Pontneddfechan, the nearest village. A track links the two starting points and gives walkers access to five different falls.
