East of Maes-llyn farm, looking towards Aberystwyth. The steep wooded slopes of Allt-ddu are on the right.

The Manchester and Milford Railway (which went to neither place) closed in 1965, but the track bed adjacent to and across part of the Cors Caron nature reserve is now used as a public footpath and the National Cycle Route No 82 (Fishguard to Machynlleth via Lampeter and Aberystwyth).

Wikipedia states that this was the Carmarthen to Aberystwyth Line, a standard gauge branch line of the Great Western Railway in Wales. As a result of floods and the Beeching Axe, the line closed throughout to passengers from 1965, and to freight from Pont Llanio creamery near Tregaron to Aberaeron Junction near Lampeter in 1970.
