"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

THE THREE PEAKS YACHT RACE is more than a boat race.  It is an endurance event, and for Barmouth its a great day in town.   This year's race commenced in Barmouth on Saturday 7th June 2014.  Boats left Barmouth harbour at 3.30 pm heading for Fort William, stopping only for the runners to ascend Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and finally Ben Nevis.  Congratulations to winners Wight Rose.  For more details and race reports see www.threepeaksyachtrace.co.uk

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.
