Anyone live between Bala and knockin?

Recommended Posts

On our way home the other day I noticed I was low on fuel but had enough to make it to the A5 .

my wife asked where do the locals fill up ? 

I’m also wondering the same. We drove for 40 miles on main roads without seeing a petrol station . 

 

Anyone shed some light on it ?

It is getting much like Texas over here with regard to fuel stations if you live aywhere out of a biggish town.  When we first went to Texas our friends there told us to assume 1/2 empty was empty and top up frequently.   I do and advise the same here.  Fortunately I have dual fuel in the Landy which gives me a lot of mileage but I still always try and keep my petrol tank half full.

The small one pump stations of the 50's no longer exist.

I think Bala used to have a petrol station on the high street, pumps on the pavement.

If you stick to the A-roads, is there one at Corwen?

There used to be a car dealership, petrol station and cafe as you head towards the A5 from Bala.

Four Crosses has 2 petrol stations, Llansaintffraid has one, I'm sure theres one in Corwen. None more than a couple of miles our the way. Them beyond knockin theres at least 3 in oswestry that I can think of, then on the A5 theres on at Nesscliff and then at Shoosberry - that's how its properly pronounced dont you know. Not Shrow or Shrew 😉 theres loads. Sainsburys is the cheapest just off the big Dobbies island.

Me and a mate got asked to shoot the golf course at Bala a few years back. They had a fox nicking golf balls. We managed a couple of times but we had so much ground to cover at home between 3 of us we had to give it up in the end. It's an interesting drive in the snow.
