Places on the Mawddach Estuary - Penmaenpool

Penmaenpool Visitor Information
Penmaenpool (pronounced ‘Pen-mine-pool’) originated as the estate village to serve Penmaenuchaf Hall, the country residence for a Lancashire entrepeneur. The village consisted of a terrace of workers cottages, a model farm and a railway station. Penmaenpool Map & Directions

With free public parking with toilets, Penmaenpool is a great place to join the Mawddach Way or the Dolgellau to Barmouth railway walk, the Mawddach Trail.

The Penmaenpool toll bridge makes it just a short walk to the RSPB bird reserve at Coed Garth Gell and the facilities at Taicynhaeaf.

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.
