Description:The A470 at Bronaber
Bronaber was the site of an army camp which was mainly associated with the one-time local firing ranges. A line of corrugated-iron buildings along the road, known locally as Tin-town, housed shops and other civilian facilities for the use of army personnel; some still remain, such as the white building in the photograph. The camp dated from 1906 and was extended over the years, but was less used after 1945. It finally closed as an army base in 1958, but was then re-opened to house those building the Trawsfynydd nuclear reactor and associated structures, being finally closed in 1963. Trawscoed Holiday Village now occupies much of the site.
