The Numbers 1085 aren’t just any random numbers. They actually hold supreme significance in North Wales, some would argue the entirety of Wales. It does in fact refer to the height of Snowdonia’s crowning jewel, the roof of Wales (and England) – Snowdon Summit.

Snowdon’s summit height has changed a few times, and although geologic processes have affected this it is so unfathomably slow we don’t account for it. It has actually changed multiple times due to guesstimates.

Its height was first estimated in 1682, when at this time it was thought that the summit lay at 1,130 metres above sea level. A century later in 1773, local man Thomas Pennant made a close estimated when he quoted it to be nearer 1,088 metres. To our surprise we learnt it was actually considered the tallest peak on the island of Great Britain until further nationwide measurements were taken during the 18th century confirming that Ben Nevis and several other Scottish Peaks are indeed taller.

Most recent surveys confirm the mountain to be 1085 metres above mean sea level.
Here at 1085 we hope it doesn’t change any time soon!
