This short cut from Dolgellau to Barmouth is well worth the 70p it costs to go across. The toll staff were all friendly and it is a beautiful short cut across the upper reaches of the Mawddach estuary with fabulous views. Lovely to see the Black Welsh cattle grazing the salt marshes.

It’s good to see the old Toll Bridge still exists and at one end are the remains of the old Railway Station, signal box, the line itself and one of the old signals. It’s a pity there’s still a charge to cross it !

I remember over 60 years ago crossing this toll bridge with my parents, today crossing it I swear the bridge has not changed, just the toll booth collecting you 0.70 pence to cross, what a bargain!
Well worth a crossing just for fun....

We were staying in Fairbourne and wanted to get to Barmouth, my partner said we needed to go over this bridge on the way. To be honest I thought he was joking initially as it looks tiny and not up to driving over, but it's sturdier than I first thought! 70p for a car, worth it though, we took some lovely photos from the other side.

We were sneaky and walked over the bridge after its' official closing time. The view from the middle is breathtaking.
