The now-disused (and eroding) former A4086, right at the edge of Llyn Padarn, Llanberis.
Taken in 2005, and making its appearance as my first ever PoTM entry!

Road Junction on the A 4086 View of a road junction on the A4086 road between Caernarfon and Llanrug
A Disused Filling Station with Elidir Fawr in the distance A view of the road junction between Pont Rhythallt and Llanrug, with a disused filling station in the foreground. More and more rural filling stations are closing as the super-markets greedily swallow all the business, yet there appear to be more cars on the roads, how far will drivers go to save a couple of pence on a gallon, probably making their journey uneconomical!
The Cwm-y-glo by-pass This by-pass was constructed just prior to the start on the Dinorwig HEP scheme to ease access to Llanberis.
A fast section of the A4096 approaching the A4547 Bangor road This section of the Llanberis to Caernarfon road, constructed at the same time as the Dinorwig HEP scheme, follows the line of the old LMS railway. It avoids the bad bends which characterised the old road at Penllyn.
