Ruined Farmstead
Ruined Farmstead
This farmstead, Tal-y-llyn, and its neighbour Ty Ucha', were purchased by the Llyn Rural District Council when the lake was being converted into a reservoir in the late 1950's and demolished. This was to reduce the risk of polluting the water. On my walk, I met Mr Williams and his son, who use to live here, and who still farm the land. They talked of the great economic and social change that had occurred in the Cwmystradllyn area during the past 60 years.
