Bwlch y Ddeufaen, Carnarvonshire
Bwlch-y-Ddeufaen, a pass in Carnarvonshire, about 4 miles SW of Aber. It is 1400 feet high, and forms part of a Roman road from Aber to Conovium (Caerhun). The summit is marked by a large upright stone about 8 feet high; and a prostrate stone a little distance off is said to be the second of the two stones from which the pass derives its name. Near the pass was found in 1883 a Roman milestone marking the eighth mile from Conovinm.
