The Villages of the Nantlle Valley

Y Groeslon

Y Groeslon, Dyffryn Nantlle, Gwynedd

Y Groeslon is a 19th century village which takes its name from the point where the Llandwrog to Moel Tryfan road (Lôn Cefn Glyn) crosses the Porthmadog to Caernarfon road and the Nantlle railway and its successors. The earliest buildings appear to have been a smithy and a public house / railway station, established in the 1840s or '50s, shortly followed by other buildings along the road.

In the 1870s and 1880s more substantial buildings were constructed according to the specification of the Newborough estate, mainly on Lôn Cefn Glyn.
