Welsh police warn drivers not to stop to gawk at the “Dragon of Bethesda”

There’s a dragon near Bethesda – dubbed “the Dragon of Bethesda” by its creator – and it’s causing a bit of bother.

No, not that Bethesda. The Bethesda in Wales, the one on the River Ogwen and the A5 road on the edge of Snowdonia, in Gwynedd.

The Draig Dderw (oak Dragon) stands 6ft tall and 12ft wide, and guards the A5, presumably from misguided Skyrim fans. It’s quite the sight – perhaps too good a sight, because motorists are apparently slowing down, or even stopping, to gawk at it.
