Overview

Barmouth Bridge, 150 years old in 2017. Currently free for pedestrians and cyclists to cross between Barmouth and Fairbourne. Once on the Fairbourne side, there is a path into Fairbourne itself, or you can travel up the famous Mawddach Trail along the disused railway line towards Dolgellau via the George the III pub.

A lovely walk over the bridge from Barmouth to Fairbourne and back if you feel energetic, or you could catch the train one way and walk the other.

Definitely worth a walk across if in Barmouth. Currently free (although you can donate in the 'troll honesty box' if you wish to help contribute to the upkeep, etc The views are spectacular and some great photos can be taken of the estuary.

Great views from Barmouth of the bridge crossing the estuary with Cader Idris behind. In summer worth taking the main line train over the bridge, the Fairbourne railway and return by ferry.

We got the small ferry across to Fairborn and walked back along the bridge. Very interesting and good views. Popped into the Last Inn for refreshments which I recommend too. We were walking for 2&a half hours so pleasant good walk.

Nice views for your photos, and lovely place, you should hike around the city and also can climb to the nearest mountain, it takes 30-40 minutes.
