Layout Guide
Llangwynllyn is a quiet hamlet in North Wales on the Afon Gwyn Estuary.
The Afon Gwyn lower dam retains water for the Bryn Myrddin Hydroelectric Pump Power Station.
The wharf formerly used for the transhipment of fine Welsh slates, hewn from the nearby Sieffre Gwilym quarry, is used by the local fishing fleet landing their catches of Mackerel, Bass, Lobster and Crab.

The local Welsh speaking people and tourists alike use the Llangwynllyn Light Railway formerly the old quarry line, as a means of transport to and from towns along the valley. The line is also used by some mineral traffic to cross the valley and gains access to the old L.N.E.R. line at Chwilog.
