Description:
The Llanberis Pass (Welsh, Bwlch Llanberis; alternative English name, Pass of Llanberis) in Snowdonia carries the main road (A4086) from the SE to Llanberis, over Pen-y-Pass, between the mountain ranges of the Glyderau and the Snowdon massif. At the bottom of the pass is the small village of Nant Peris, clustered round the ancient church of Saint Peris. The pass recently featured on BBC Television's Top Gear Motorshow during a review of the 2010 Aston Martin V12 Vantage. It was used for location filming in the 1968 film Carry On... Up the Khyber
