A stone-built quay, approximately 200m long, on the N bank of the Afon Dwyryd. The surviving remains, which are well preserved, include the quay, 23 sets of landing steps, slate tying posts, a slipway at the N end of the quay, two roofed buildings and a row of hitching posts for pannier ponies and cart horses. At this quay Ffestiniog slates were loaded onto flat-bottomed craft for transport downstream. Predating the Ffestiniog railway, it is perhaps late 18th century in date.
