We stopped on the south side of the estuary of the River Mawddach to have a closer look at the toll bridge and the George III hotel.
The old railway line is now a cycle trail – the Mawddach Trail. At the side of the old railway signal box I found this plaque. It celebrated when a ferry hit the toll bridge and fifteen people died. The hotel’s owner and barman helped save all the others on the ferry.
I learnt from a plaque along the Mawddach Trail that this are had been a busy ship building area. The wooden ships being built at the side of the estuary and then taken down to Barmouth to be rigged with sails.
I found this painted stone in the car park on top of a sign for the Mawddach Trail.
Here are Steve’s images as we crossed over the toll bridge to go over to the norh side of estuary and on to Barmouth.
