Dinas Mawddwy

Gift & Specialty Shops · Monuments
Dinas Mawddwy is a town and community in south-east Gwynedd, north Wales. It lies within the Snowdonia National Park, but just to the east of the main A470, and consequently many visitors pass the village by. Its population is roughly 600. The village marks the junction of the unclassified road to Llanuwchllyn which climbs up through the mountains to cross Bwlch y Groes at its highest point, the second highest road pass in Wales. This minor road also provides the closest access to the mountain Aran Fawddwy.Dinas Mawddwy is the home of the 1996 British Rally Championship winner Gwyndaf Evans.The community includes the villages of Mallwyd, Aberangell, and Llanymawddwy.Early historyIron AgeThere are thought to be two Iron Age fortifications in the immediate vicinity of Dinas Mawddwy. One is on the top of Moel Benddin, where a low depression forms the supposed site. The second fortification was in C'aer-bryn field, to the south of the Buckley Arms Hotel, that still had stonework in place in the late 18th Century.
