Dolgellau

Dolgellau may be dour on a bleak winter’s day, but in the summer sun it was unexpectedly cheerful in spite of the heavy dark stone from which the town is built.   It used to be jam full of through traffic, but this goes on the new road, leaving the centre as an unspoilt market town with butcher, baker, draper, cafés and wine merchant and no chains except for Spar in a nonconformist chapel.   This is the butcher:

    Thank you for the recommendation – a town I did not know well worth a visit, I decide after looking at your photographs.
