"No.4 Porthmadog Wharf" WW2 Home Guard roadblock. The patched up road sockets can still be seen in the road. The roadblock consisted of 2 Bull Nose type Hairpin Anti-Tank rails in a single barrier. A bent rail used as an obstacle to block the road from tanks!

Trackbed to the former Welsh Highland Railway (WHR), opened in 1923, but closed to traffic at the end of 1931. Reopened by the Festiniog Railway in 1934, but only operated until September 1936 for passengers and May 1937 for goods. Not so far from the Talyllyn Railway, the first in the world to be run by volunteers from 1951 onwards, the WHR has been rebuilt in one of the epics of railway restoration, and now runs trains between Porthmadog and Caernarfon.
