Led Zeppelin - Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp

Bron-Yr-Aur (Welsh for "golden hill", "breast of the gold" or "hill of the gold") is an 18th century cottage in South Snowdonia, Wales, best known for its association with English rock band Led Zeppelin.

The cottage was used by the family of Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant during the 1950s as a holiday home. In 1970, Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page spent time there after a long and gruelling concert tour of the United States. Though the cottage had no running water or electricity, they used it as a retreat to write and record some of their third album, Led Zeppelin III.
