Summary Description

Barmouth is a delightful seaside resort facing out over Cardigan Bay with views north towards the Lleyn peninsula. Just to the south of the church is Dinas Oleu, 4.5 acres of cliff, it was the first property acquired by the National Trust in 1895. This National Trust property overlooks the splendid Barmouth Railway Viaduct. John Ruskin visited the town and his association with the town gave rise to the Barmouth Ruskin Trust. Charles Darwin stayed here while revising ‘On the Origin of Species’. References Buildings of Wales – Gwynedd 2009 The Welsh Academy Encyclopaedia of Wales
