Photos of the 30-foot OO gauge replica of the Dolgellau and Penmaenpool stations that visited Dolgellau in May 2013.
New books including walks around Barmouth Town and The Mawddach-Ardudwy Trail.
Dolgellau is set in the southern part of The Snowdonia National Park, at the foot of the Cader Idris (Cadair Idris) mountain range with three main routes to the summit.
The town is a great base for touring Snowdonia with many popular walks only two or three miles from the town centre. These include Torrent Walk and Precipice Walks (old and new). Another very popular walk/cycle ride starts from the town car park and runs nine miles along the old railway line to Barmouth on the coast. This is the Mawddach Trail (or "Llwybr Mawddach" in Welsh). This walk was featured on Julia Bradbury's "Railway Walks" series on the BBC a couple of years ago. There is also a very nice pub (the George III) after three miles.
