Catherine Zeta Jones Backs Snowdonia Farm Purchase

Catherine Zeta Jones is the latest celebrity to support a campaign by the UK National Trust to purchase a 614-acre farm along the gorgeous shores of Llyn Dinas lake in Snowdonia.

Naturally, the place is steeped in legend – where supposedly the Welsh red dragon battled the white dragon for supremacy. (The red dragon won – with the latter falling into the lake.)

Matthew Rhys, of the television series “Brothers and Sisters”, was the first actor to support the £1m campaign saying that if efforts aren’t taken to protect the area, “we risk losing the peace of this tranquil valley to commercial development.”

Zeta Jones added: “The beauty and landscape of Snowdonia is truly unique and we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to protect Llyndy Isaf in this stunning part of Wales for future generations.”

So far, the campaign has reached the half-way point – raising some £500,000. Organizers hope that with Catherine’s added reach, they might finally be able to preserve the area – much like actor Anthony Hopkins helped achieve during a 1998 £4m purchase of land on the southern flank of Snowdon.
