Porthywaen level crossing: Photographed on May 23, 2009, the rails on A495 crossing were covered in tarmac several years ago as a safety measure. However, the layer is not that thick, as evidenced by the faint lines in the roadway. The track in the shallow cutting behind the Porthywaen village hall has benefitted from further vegetation clearance since this photograph was taken. Copyright Gareth Evans.
