Llanycil, the mother parish church of Bala nestles by the lakeside. The graves of Thomas Charles and Lewis Edwards are amongst the Yew trees near the lake. At Glan Llyn, on the left, about 2 miles further on towards Llanuwchllyn is the year round camp for the Urdd (Welsh League of Youth). This hall was once the summer home of Sir Watkins William-Wynne of Ruabon, who also owned the lake. Death duty payments transferred the lake to the Crown.
