The Mawwdach river rises near to Lake Bala and is joined by the Afon Wnion downstream from Dolgellau. The poet William Wordsworth called it “the sublime estuary” and reported that " it could “compare with the finest in Scotland”.

The estuary is a superb place to watch wading birds and gulls. A rail and footbridge runs from Morfa Mawddach Station to the resort of Barmouth.

Bontddu, set on the estuary hills which were the centre for the nineteenth century goldrush, experienced a brief boom at the time. Gold was discovered there in 1834 and prospectors flooded into the area. By the 1920’s the industry had all but disappeared. (

We searched hard for some Gold but alas to no avail!

    Another, fabulous shot from Wales. It’s becoming obvious that I was born in the wrong place All of your Wales captures are wonderful. Sally (I do spend quite a bit of time in the gold country of Ca. though)
