Description from my new book "Nant Gwrtheyrn: The Enchantment - Y Swyngyfaredd"
"This is a strange area. It is in the elbow of the beach and is almost the last place ever to get the sun, facing almost directly north-west. It is backed by huge cliffs with narrow little ravines cutting through them and on the west side there are the dark, scarred, quarried levels of Carreg y Llam. The beach here is littered with rubbish brought in on the tide, and amongst the boulders there are masses of small metal remnants from the quarrying industry and the associated jetties and buildings. The foam, which I have been informed is natural algae, looks like suds from washing-up liquid, and this seemed ironic when I considered the mass of things washed up on the shoreline!"
