Local Government
Council: Conwy

Pont-y-Pant is a hamlet, if that, beside the River Lledr in Caernarfonshire, in the river's deep-cut valley, wooded, forbidding and gorgeous, all within Snowdonia. Pont-y-Pant consists of a scatter of cottages and a farm above the river along the A470 a mile and a half below the village of Dolwyddlan, and a railway station n the opposite bank.

The station is a single platform passenger station on the Conwy Valley Line from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog, and here the line runs up through the Lledr Valley

Pont-y-Pant Station

The station is unstaffed halt and used as a request stop only. It is joined to the A470 main road and by a single bridge a quarter of a mile to the north of the station.

The station serves the few, isolated properties of Pont-y-Pant, and is also useful to walkers, owing to its proximity to a surviving section of the Sarn Helen Roman road, and to the nearby village of Dolwyddelan, for though the latter has its own station at Pentre Bont, the walk is a pretty one.

The 5-acre John Chorley Recreation Ground at Pont-y-Pant is a Queen Elizabeth II Field.
