Summary[edit]

Description
English: "Arnold's Rock", near Tyn y Morfa Looking east along the shore towards Criccieth. There is a story behind this rock and it derives from the 1960's when a boy who was on holiday and staying at Tyn y Morfa which at that time belonged to Mr Richards of Glanllynnau Farm. The boy (Arnold) was fishing from the beach and was cut off by the incoming tide which had come in round behind him (this part of the beach being raised, he hadn't noticed). He was forced to stand on this rock for an hour and a half until the tide receded and the water came up around his waist (he couldn't swim!). Hence this distinctive Rock became known as "Arnold's Rock" at least locally (the joke being if you are going fishing don't, whatever you do, fish from Arnold's Rock!). I doubt that this story is known much beyond Llanystumdwy and Chwilog and I doubt very much it is marked on any map, although it may well be documented somewhere locally because, as I understood it, the Criccieth Lifeboat was called out, but was not needed in the end.
