About Porthmadog

Porthmadog formerly known as Portmadoc until 1974 and affectionately called “Port” by locals, is a coastal town and hamlet in the Eifionydd district of Gwynedd, Wales, and the medieval county of Caernarfonshire. It is located 25 miles (40 km) north of Dolgellau, 20 miles (32 km) south of Caernarfon, and 5 miles (8 km) east of Criccieth. In 2011, 4,185 people called this area home; in 2019, that number has been estimated to be lower at 4,134.  In the nineteenth century, it flourished as a port for local slate; but, as that industry fell, the town adapted to become a shopping and tourist hub, thanks to its location near Snowdonia National Park and the Ffestiniog Railway. During that year (1987), it played host to the National Eisteddfod. Borth-y-Gest, Morfa Bychan, and Tremadog are all adjacent and part of it.

In order to recover most of Traeth Mawr from the sea for farming use, William Madocks constructed a sea wall, the Cob, between 1808 and 1811. This led to the development of Porthmadog. Afon Glaslyn was diverted, creating a new natural harbor deep enough for small ocean-going sailing ships, and the first public wharves opened in 1825.
