SH3040 : Nefyn

taken 3 years ago, near to Nefyn, Gwynedd, Great Britain

The mini-roundabout effectively marks the centre of Nefyn, where the A497 from Pwllheli meets the B4417. Straight on is Stryd Y Plas and to the right Stryd Fawr (High Street). Despite its attractive location with a beach, Nefyn does not feel like a seaside village - it has quite a different atmosphere to, say, Abersoch on the other side of the peninsula. It has long been a minor centre at the heart of a deeply rural district, but its best days seem to be behind it. Shopping is pretty much limited to a couple of convenience stores and a post office; the building on the left is recognisably a former Midland Bank branch, but there is no bank here now.
