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.

It's a lovely walk across Barmouth bridge, crossing the estuary with the water beneath. Catches your breath seeing a train coming straight towards you, but you're safe staying on the pedestrian path away from the train line. No other vehicles can cross so it's safe....More

Well a bridge is a bridge isn't it. A few in the world are architectural or engineering wonders, but mostly they are mundane. Nothing particularly wonderful about this one, but its good. It does a valuable job and has an interesting outlook.

Really interesting to walk over the railway bridge. Turn right at the end and head into Fairbourne. Stop at the golf club for a coffee, very welcoming.You can come back either by little steam train/ferry or on the main line.

You can walk or cycle across the bridge, there is an honesty toll at the Barmouth end £1. with money going to the upkeep of the bridge. If you are really lucky there will be a train come by at the same time.

The view when you travel over the Barmouth Bridge is fantastic, one side you look up the estuary towards the mountains or out to sea. The bridge is on the Welsh Walk and is worth a visit. Barmouth is a great little town with lots...More

Travel by train to Morfa Mawddach then walk back across the bridge. It's unusual to be able to get so close to an active train line. Good views from the middle of the bridge.

Barmouth Bridge - or Bont Y Bermo as I think the locals call it, was devastated by a marine worm some years ago and was under threat of demolition, but it was saved by (I think) Network Rail. If only steam trains still ran across...More
