Brithdir Visitor Information
Brithdir is an elongated hamlet on the eastern outskirts of Dolgellau. Historically it was considered to be two townships, Brithdir-Uchaf and Brithdir-Isaf (Higher and Lower Brithdir).
The Romans settled here building a small fort and abandoning it around AD 120, and Plas Hen, the ‘Old House’ of the Caerynwch estate dates back to the 15th Century.
The Torrent Walk, a classic Victorian woodland wander alongside a moss-strewn series of waterfalls, also lies within the grounds of this estate.
St Mark’s church is well worth a visit. A grade I listed building, considered to be one of the finest Arts & Crafts churches in Wales.
For something a little different, why not explore some of the remains of 20th century military activity in the area. From hill-top memorials to beach defences, there are over 50 different sites in and around the Mawddach Estuary to be explored on foot, by bike or by car. See here for further details.
