Area profile

This area is made up of several small villages and the town of Harlech.

Harlech is a town which attracts many tourists because of its castle and also its championship golf course. The castle was originally built next to the sea, but geological processes have changed the shape of the coastline, and the castle now lies on a face, about half a mile (800 m) inland. The town's railway station is served by the Cambrian Coast Line.

There are a number of shops, services and facilities in the town.

Talsarnau/Soar is a samll village situated 4 miles out of Harlech. It is just over a mile from Penrhyndeudraeth if travelling over Pont Briwet, a Grade II listed wooden bridge which crosses the River Dwyryd. In July 2010, the Welsh Assembly Government announced a £20million joint-project with Network Rail to replace the existing bridge by 2013 with a new structure. The old bridge will be retained due to its listed structure, transformed into a pedestrian walkway.The village has small railway station which serves trains on the Cambrian Line.
