Penrhyndeudraeth: Traeth Mawr
Seen from the embankment known as the Cob and looking towards mountains in the Snowdon range Cnicht to the left and Moelwyn Mawr and Moelwyn Bach to the right. The Cob was a project instigated by William Madocks later MP for Boston, Lincolnshire aimed at reclaiming land in the estuary of the Glaslyn. It was completed in 1811. Sluices at its northern end scoured a channel sufficient for sailing vessels to berth there and this harbour developed into Porthmadog. From 1836 the Ffestiniog Railway ran horse-drawn trains loaded with slates for shipment at the new harbour
