SH958697 (3*) Off-Roaders Only!

'This is definitely a ford for off road vehicles only, and I'm not sure you could get to it on anything other than a trail bike. The trail approaching from the west is steep and muddy at first, but quickly turns to rocks and gravel. It's too narrow for a car or Land Rover where it leaves the "main road". There were some tracks from trail bikes in the mud, but it's worth mentioning that the track up the west bank runs right beside someone's house and garden so I doubt they'd appreciate a lot of noisy visiters to the ford. As far as I could see, the trail leaving the ford to the east was pretty similar. The ford itself looks quite tame, about 20 feet across with a gravel bottom, and maybe 6-8 inches of water.'

'The ford is rocky bottomed. Most of the road is finished with a Macadam type surface (not Tarmacadam). This road was used as the route to Holyhead until the early 1800's ! There were plans to 'turnpike' it but they came to nothing. The London -Holyhead route in those days was via Llangollen - Corwen - Pentrefoelas - Llanrwst - Trefriw and over the top to Abergwyngregyn - then over the sands to Beaumaris - Llangefni & Holyhead.'

Important Info from Guy Springett:
'The lane has a permanent TRO (traffic restriction order) on the lane and has done for many years. The reason is that it is within the Snowdonia National Park and they do not want 4x4s wrecking the park. I have enquired about this lane before to both the council and park rangers and both have said "no way", with the added "if you do and are caught you will get fined and points on your license". It is a real pity because it is a gorgeous lane.'

'On gated road between the A5 and the A543 (curiously signed as a no through road from the south) the ford itself has no signage and around 4 inches deep in February.'
