Historic Trawsfynydd pub destroyed by fire

North Wales Fire Service

A joint investigation is continuing into the cause of a fire which gutted a 12th Century pub near Trawsfynydd.

Six crews were called out to the Rhiw Goch Inn near the holiday complex at around 12.30am on Sunday morning (14th October).

No one was injured – but the building, which was originally a farmhouse, has been completely destroyed.

Police say they are keen to hear from a group of students who were staying at the pub at the time.

Firefighters remained at the scene for more than twelve hours to tackle the blaze and prevent it from spreading to other buildings. An aerial ladder and two bowsers were also used.

Inspector Jason Higgins from North Wales Police said: ”We believe a number of students were staying at the location at the time and would be keen to hear from them. We are also appealing to anyone who may have filmed the fire on their mobile phone to contact police on 101 quoting reference W146588.”
