Say it!: Afon: av-on
Dwyfor: Dwe-vor

*place your tongue behind your top teeth and blow either side


Old gate on the riverside path.

 The Afon Dwyfor is the largest river on the peninsula and flows down from the western slopes of Snowdonia, through Llanystumdwy and then out into Tremadog Bay. The wooded mile or so upstream from Llanystumdwy is very picturesque, particularly in the autumn when the leaves are changing colour. Most of the walk is fairly level and is suitable for all abilities, but beware of the odd tree root and uneven parts of the path made up with rocks.

From the bridge in the centre of the village, head up the small lane upstream on the opposite side of the river to the church, and there are openings in the wall on the side of the road which lead past a Lloyd George memorial down to the riverside. Walk upstream alongside the river as far as you like and you can turn around and come back. If you would like to do a round trip, take a turn when you see a clear path off to your right which goes through a wall and on to a country lane. If you walk up the river to a road bridge, you have gone too far! But not too far, so if you turn around you should soon find the path on your left.
Once you get onto the country lane, turn right down an initial long straight stretch, then through a farm and around some bends, eventually you will get to a T junction, where you need to again, turn right. You will soon find yourself back in the village at the start.

There is nice tea-shop in the village to finish off your walk!
