Historic background

This character area comprises a block of modern (20th-century) forestry plantation above the south-west shore of Llyn Trawsfynydd, probably planted at the same time as the large blocks of similar forestry in and around Coed y Brenin to the south. The tithe map shows a concentration of largish fields centred on Cae Rhys (which are still shown on the modern OS map and presumably still survive within the forestry), with the area above apparently unenclosed waste (leading into area 03).
