Pak in the housing estate and take the footpath. Walk West / North West and you will see a big cliff face on the left. There is an obvious grass path up there. Very steep. I imagine very slippery in the wet!

This location offers some of the most dramatic mountainous scenery in the UK. A number of streams flow into Llyn Idwal from around Cwm Idwal. Lots of rapids and waterfalls so great for long exposure shots, especially after a lot of rain in the river.

Check tides before you go! (Liverpool bay should be ok, just add ten minutes on to the times) Try to time it so you get there 3 hours either side of high water (on about an 8 meter tide) as they do cover over. The walk down is slippery, so wear some good boots/wellies.

There is a foot path either side of the cut. The left hand side veers off and you have a restricted (by fences and bushes) view of the ship.

Good for long exposures during the day and sunrise/ sunset shots. 

No access on to the pier itself but at low tide you can walk under to get some good shots of the old iron work.

Best visited at night for light painting. Shoot low to get a great perspective. 

Very sheltered, so any weather would be fine but a strong north easterly wind might come through but these are pretty rare in this area of Wales.
