External Links

This page contains links to web sites that I come across from time to time that do a much better job than I in portraying the beauty of specific features of the area. I hope to improve my site in time but for now I highly recommend these sites for the depth and the quality of information that they contain. I give priority to Barmouth-related sites followed by some of my favorites from around the area.

Fairbourne and Barmouth Steam Railway
A narrow guage steam train, running from Penrhyn Point, a short ferry ride from Barmouth harbour, to Fairbourne, two miles away. The Fairbourne & Barmouth Railway track was originally laid in 1895, by Mr. Arthur McDougall of flour fame, to transport building materials for the construction of Fairbourne village.

Some hints and tips as to where and what to catch in the Barmouth area
Portmeirion
Sir Clough Williams-Ellis (1883-1978) had since his boyhood nurtured a dream of one day building his own ideal village on some romantic coast. Portmeirion is a small private village set on its own wooded peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay in North Wales.  The most famous use of Portmeirion as a location was without doubt Patrick McGoohan's The Prisoner, shot in the 1960s.

Case of Harlech Bookstore
The Cases have been very helpful to me and they send out a newsletter about new and interesting books about the area. I think you will enjoy their site. It is provided for convenience only. Happy reading!
The Castles of Wales
An extremely good site documenting all kinds of information about Welsh castles - highly recommended
Great Little Trains of Wales
A terrific site for train enthusiasts. The Great Little Trains of Wales are narrow gauge railways built through the beautiful scenery of north and west Wales. Built in a time less hasty than our own, most originally served to carry Welsh slate from hill to harbour. Now tourists have replaced slate as the main traffic, and dedicated volunteers have joined the paid staff in the work of restoring and running these pretty little railways.
North Wales Newspapers
This is the site for North Wales Newspapers which is is North and Mid Wales' largest circulating group, publishing 11 quality titles throughout the region. NWN also produces 'made to measure' colour publications in its Special Publications department.
West Wales Web
This is a useful guide to a number of interesting facts about West Wales
