More about this scene

In this view of the seafront just west of the harbour, a lone wagon stands on the siding from the Aberdovey Harbour branch line. The seafront terraces and hills behind remain much the same today, and boating has grown ever more popular in the Dyfi estuary, which is fringed by wooded banks.

Other Memories from Aberdyfi

My brothers and I would cycle from Borth to Ynyslas sand dunes from where we could see the village of Aber Dovey nestled on the other side of the estuary. We were told that on a clear day if you listened carefully you would hear church bells ringing beneath the waves. Due to the fast moving tidal flow around the estuary we were always careful not wander out too far onto the sand banks. The dunes were a peaceful haven for rabbits and wildlife.
