Historic background

A small, mainly 19th-century village which may owe its existence to its position at the foot of a road from Cwmystradllyn, and which may represent an early landing-point on Traeth Mawr. There have been several additions to the hosuing stock in the latter 20th century.

Key historic landscape characteristics

19th-century village

A small village situated on the edge of the former Glaslyn estuary. It includes a chapel and a pub, the Glaslyn Hotel, on the former Traeth, and houses disposed around the road to Cwmystradllyn. The dwellings are mostly of 19th-century construction, with some later additions, but little of note.
