Llanystumdwy, is a pretty stone village just to the west of Criccieth, remarkable in one way - it was here that David Lloyd George, British Prime Minister 1916-22, the only Welshman ever to hold the office, grew up.
Famously proud of his Welsh blood he became one of the 20th century's most important figures, seeing Britain through World War I and instigating important social reform.
He lived in Llanystumdwy until he was 16 and it is thought many of his political and social ideals were formed here, particularly his national pride. There is a museum dedicated to his memory with all sorts of artefacts and trivia and his grave lies under a memorial by the River Dwyfor.
