New path planned to bridge


Trains are running into Barmouth again from Towyn, Machynlleth and the Midlands, and work is proceeding on the rail line to Pwllheli.


"THERE IS NO BETTER WALK THAN THAT THROUGH FROM BARMOUTH TO DOLGELLAU OTHER THAN FROM DOLGELLAU TO BARMOUTH"..... John Ruskin.     The proposed  path beside the railway linking the bridge and harbour, will further enhance the walk which so impressed Ruskin, giving pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users a safer route than the existing narrow pavement between sheer rockface and the main A496.Fore more information see  Barmouth Viaduct Access Group website

Recent Tuesdays have included a School uniform party, and an ALIEN NIGHT with special guests  former Duran Duran frontman  Andy Wickett and his band Mau 61.

HE THREE PEAKS YACHT RACE is more than a boat race.  It is an endurance event, and for Barmouth its a great day in town.  Boats left Barmouth on Saturday 15th June heading for Fort William, stopping only for the runners to ascend Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and finally Ben Nevis.  Plenty of entertainment in town over the weekend, though the weather dampened things for visitors, and made for a lively start for competitors.   For more details and race reports see  Next race will commence in Barmouth on Saturday 7th June 2014.


RADIO BARMOUTH are one of the groups which have been helped by Barmouth First. We are setting up our own radio station here in Barmouth.  Anyone interested, either in the technical side or in contributing material  please contact us via this site.


Was JRR Tolkien's  creation of Middle Earth inspired by Barmouth?

Local resident and sculptor Mr Frank Cocksey believes so Mr Cocksey's work includes "The Last Haul" on the harbour, sculpted from marble salvaged from the Bronze Bell wreck of 1709. The sculpture represents three generations of fishermen.  The Bronze Bell shipwreck exhibition may be seen in the tourist season above Davy Jones' Locker Restaurant just a short walk along the quay.
