Afon Glaslyn near Porthmadog
Afon Glaslyn near Porthmadog
When the slate port of Porthmadog was developed by William Madocks in the 19th century, a huge embankment was built across the mouth of the Afon Glaslyn, thus making it possible to reclaim much land for farming and also producing a large area of saltmarsh.
