It is a small manufacturing town, situated on the slope of a hill, with a considerable miscellaneous trade.

Ten miles up the coast is Harlech, with its historical old ruined castle, from which Craig Ddrwg and the Rhinog Faur (upwards of 2,000 feet high) may be climbed, with every yard full of Druidical and British remains.
