Signal opposite the George III Hotel, Penmaenpool
Signal opposite the George III Hotel, Penmaenpool
This was formerly the site of Penmaenpool railway station, on the line between Ruabon and Barmouth. The line closed in the 1960s and this part is now a cycle path. The tubular post signal seen here has replaced the original bracket signal that was in situ at the time of the closure of the line.
The Mawddach Trail :: SH6515
The Mawddach Trail (Welsh: Llwybr Mawddach) is a cycle path following part of the former trackbed of the Ruabon to Barmouth railway line, closed in the 1960s. The trail runs for 8 miles between Dolgellau and Morfa Mawddach railway station, with a continuation across the bridge to Barmouth. For much of its length it runs close to the picturesque Mawddach estuary.

The trail forms part of National Cycle Network Route 8 (Lôn Las Cymru).
