Came across this clip of Robert Plant and Jimmy Page doing "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and wondered which quarry this was shot in - can anyone satisfy my idle curiosity?

Robert Plant used to have a place up Cwm Einion apparently. No idea if he still does.

I used to camp on his field and in the morning he would come down and have cup of coffee with my then lady friend Maureen and I.

Definately not Aberllefenni and would agree with Roy that it is Cwm Einon, otherwise known as Artists Valley

Mr Plant no longer has the property but does still visit the area.

I've only watched the first 20 seconds (the drone fly by) and I can give you my assurance, that is Aberllefenni. I can even see the buildings I rent there.

Aberllefenni was in reply to where the music video was shot, not where Robert Plant's house was located. And Aberllefenni its is Smile

Yes. We camped in the 'field' next to the car park, below the spoil tips. It would be late 1980s.

His house was the big one on the left with balconies you pass on the road. He hates people recognising him and fussing. he took to me because I just talked to him like I would anybody. Probably thought I didn't know who he was, but I did.

Thanks everyone!

Roy - I guess he also appreciated chatting to a fellow Black Countryman...

Led Zep rented Bron-Yr-Aur in 1970 to unwind after the intense US touring of 1969, and did record several tracks there. Robert Plant bought the place later, and may still own it for all I know!
