Abergynolwyn

Abergynolwyn (English: Mouth of the River with a Whirlpool) is a village in southern Gwynedd, Wales, located at the confluence of the Nant Gwernol and the Afon Dysynni.

Historically, the village was part of Merionethshire and its main industry wasslate quarrying. The village was founded in the 1860s to house workers at the nearby Bryn Eglwys quarry. Today farming, forestry and tourism are the major local industries.

The village pub, the Railway Inn, is named after the Talyllyn Railway whose narrow gauge branch once reached into the heart of the village down an incline from a ledge on the hillside above. The railway now terminates at Nant Gwernol station above the village, although for many years the terminus was at Abergynolwyn Station outside the village.
