SH6918 : Old Penmaenuchaf Estate Boundary Wall

taken 13 years ago, near to Penmaenpool, Gwynedd, Great Britain

Old Penmaenuchaf Estate Boundary Wall
Old Penmaenuchaf Estate Boundary Wall
This photograph shows an old dry stone wall that once formed a boundary to the Penmaenuchaf Estate in Penmaenpool, Gwynedd. Through the trees and to the east of the boundary wall is the village of Penmaenpool on the Mawddach Estuary. Detailed maps show the nearest building to be Penmaen Cottage.

The wall which I can confirm being at least 10 feet tall, is a defining boundary line and also, since it climbs steeply around the bottom of Ffridd-y-Mynydd cliff (behind photographer), a lasting testimony to the skill of the dry stone wall builder.
