River Elwy

The River Elwy is a tributary of the River Clwyd in the north of Wales. The Elwy Valley inspired some of Gerard Manley Hopkins’s most beloved poetry when he was at Saint Beuo’s Seminary. Hopkins said that his poem, “Hurrahing in Harvest,” was “the outcome of half an hour of extreme enthusiasm as I walked home alone one day from fishing in the Elwy.”
