Our Trip of North Wales!! 2

After we left Wylfa, we left Anglsey then we went to Trawsfynydd to see the Trawsfynydd Nuclear Power Station. The building looked like a castle, as the sign on the site said the neighborhood calls the plant 'Traws Castle'. We heard the plant had drained the pollutants of the plant, but the day, we didn't catch any high level radiation on our geiger counter.…
