Ffridd Gel, an area of rough grazing, was where touring circuses used to set up camp in the 1950s and early 60s. The stone wall marks the line of the 1824 Dinorwig Quarry tramway which preceded the Padarn Railway. The Pentre Helen Council estate beyond was built shortly before World War II and physically united the then separate villages of Deiniolen and Clwt y bont.
