Cwm Penmachno, Conwy

Cwm Penmachno is a former quarry settlement at the head of the Penmachno valley in North Wales. The slate quarry was formerly linked by narrow-gauge railway to the Ffestiniog railway at Blaenau Ffestiniog. The slopes around the village provide streams which are the source of the river Machno, which flows past the larger village of Penmachno before joining the river Conwy south of Betws-y-coed.
