Who remembers Rupert Bear??
Well many of the illustrations of Rupert Bear stories were inspired by the scenery in and around Beddgelert. Alfred Edmeades Bestall, the illustrator of these famous stories in the Daily Express newspaper for over 40 years, lived in Beddgelert - he bought his cottage there - "Penlan" in 1956.
