The Villages of the Nantlle Valley



Nantlle, Nantlle Valley, Gwynedd.

It is likely that Tŷ Mawr and the mill were built on a medieval site of a Welsh royal court. In its grounds is an 1860s quarry barracks, which have been adapted by the Welsh Development Agency for use as offices and a community centre.

The village developed along the turnpike road between the 1850s and the 1890s by the philanthropic Unitarian managers of Pen yr Orsedd Quarry.
