[W Conwy].

Waterway of north Wales, starting from Lake Conway and running north to Beaumaris Bay in Gwynedd; until 1974 it formed the boundary between the now extinct counties of Denbigh and Caernarvon. Near the town of Conway, at the west of the river's mouth, lies the site of Degannwy, court of the 6th-century king Maelgwn Gwynedd. The waters of the Conway are thought to evoke the dying groans of Dylan, the Welsh aquatic hero.
