Machynlleth Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Machynlleth [pronounced roughly like Macuncleth] is a town passed heading south from Dolgellau. Here Owain Glydwr (Owen Glendower) formed a Welsh Parliament in the Fifteenth Century. It makes a good cheap rail trip in an evening from Pwllheli in the Lleyn Peninsula but is perhaps best known for the Centre for Alternative Technology a short distance away on the road to the North. Here a living community live a sustainable life using natural resources such as wind, water and surprisingly for the Welsh hills sunlight!
