Access Road into Gilfach Ddu
Access Road into Gilfach Ddu
This cutting occupied by the road and, on the left, by the Llanberis extension of the Lake Railway, was initially created to form a better connection between Gilfach Ddu and the Wellington district of Dinorwig Quarry than was offered by the then inadequate Glan y Bala tunnel SH5860 : The Glan y Bala Tunnel. Up to the 1960s a number of tramways ran through this cutting. The buildings on the right, the former Gilfach Ddu workshops, now form part of the Welsh Slate Museum.
