Barmouth on the Map

The map on the right represents my playground, growing up in Barmouth as I did from 1949 until 1969. It is contained in area 1 shown on the left. At that time Barmouth was in Merionethshire or Sir Feirionydd. I remember the Merionethshire flag was quite striking, although of course the flag I carry with me on my travels these days is the Welsh Dragon (courtesy of my daughter).

Even now I find myself thinking about doing some of the treks that I never got around to doing while I was there - like walking from near Cwm Bychan (about 5 miles inland from Llanbedr) over the hills to Harlech to the North. Or walking due east from the peak until reaching the A470 road from Dolgellau. One of these days! Ordnance survey maps are available 

Of course many things have changed - the steam train that took us to school in Harlech, leaving Barmouth at 8:00AM every morning became a diesel at some point and later, Merionethshire became Gwynedd. The concrete sea wall was built on the promenade and a causeway across to Ynys-y-Brawdd from the Bath House was built

Frixo is a road traffic reporting site. It provides users with live traffic information and gets updated every 3 minutes using various road sensors.
