The Arch Picnic Site

The Arch Picnic Site

Cwmystwyth, Aberystwyth, Dyfed, SY23 4AB

This lovely car park and picnic area offer access to a nearby spectacular old masonry arch that sits by the side of the road from Devil’s Bridge. The structure makes for an excellent foreground item of interest for astrophotographers. With walking trails to explore by day, the location comes alive at night with wonderful dark starry skies. Location recommended by Cambrian Mountain Dark Skies.
