Letter: Nature should go unadorned

IN HIS article about the summit cafe on Snowdon and the merits of a "better building", Tony Heath misses the far more important point that our greatest mountains should not be adorned by any buildings ("Teahouse at the top is past its peak", 31 March).

The grandeur of the mountains is diminished by this kind of commercial intervention, and Snowdon in particular does not need the further environmental damage that would result from an increased number of daytrippers attracted by this "theme park/visitor centre" approach.

We should expect more responsible behaviour on the part of the national park authorities.
