I teach fluid mechanics at a college in Canada although I spent much of my youth rock-climbing in the Llanberis area. I would like to use some of these images in my classes. Dave Morgan

We'll do some investigation and get back to you on that question if we can, in the meantime there's a story explaining the construction here: http://www.peoplescollectionwales.co.uk/Story/112-building-electric-mountain
