Bridge Past Dolbadarn Keep

Dolbadarn Castle Beyond Llanberis BridgeThe Llanberis Lake Railway, in Snowdonia, uses this bridge to cross the shortest river in Wales, Afon y Bala, which flows between Llyn Peris and Llyn Padarn.

Dolbadarn Castle was built in the 13th century by Llywelyn ap Iorwerth (Llywelyn the Great), but only the keep remains in solid condition. If you look closely, you can see the keep beyond the bridge.

  2. What beautiful country side! Are you able to explore the keep of the castle? Wonderful shot!

    • Thanks for the compliment! As for entering the keep, I’m not sure. We didn’t go to the castle (short on time), but we did see people at the keep’s entryway, so it looked possible to go inside. The castle is maintained by Cadw (Welsh gov’t historic preservation service) and their website does not mention a limit to exploring the site.
