Portmeirion on Streetview

It seems the Google Streetview cameras have been mounted on something smaller than a car (a Segway?) and rolled around Portmeirion Village (location of The Prisoner, etc).

You can scroll around the village itself and even go on a coastal walk. Here’s the utterly random Nelson statue.

Curiously Nelson’s face isn’t blurred out by the facial recognition algorithm, though his hand is.

All that’s missing is a man in a Number 6 costume running in front of the camera for that full You Are Rover experience.
