Gordon McLeod is one of the funniest people in North Wales. Unfortunately, his humour is so ahead of its time only Germans and Snowdonian sheep can appreciate it. Some (the sheep mostly) say this is due to the Chernobyl effect.
He lives with his wife and and daughter under a bridge. Not just any bridge, you understand, but Thomas Telford's historic suspension bridge over the Menai Straits, about which more will appear on this website soon.
Gordon is a man of many talents, and legend has it that he once showed the mysterious Edwin Drood a few slick licks on the Appalachian mountain dulcimer when the latter made an incognito pilgrimage to his Celtic lair. The recordings of this meeting have since been mysteriously mislaid somewhere in the basement of the Smithsonian Institute.
Gordon has already contributed several photos to My Favourite Planet, most of which have been too technically advanced for us to cope with (the sheep say it's pure jealousy). He has promised to send us some photos more down to our level as soon as his daughter lets him use the internet.
