It is unclear when the road bridge over the Glaslyn connecting Gwynant Street with Sygun Terrace, Meirion Terrace etc. was constructed. It was not present on the Ordnance Survey map, surveyed in 1949, which was published in 1953. It may have been at the same time as the bridge, connecting Sygun Terrace, Meirion Terrace etc. to the roadway leading from Ty Isaf, was replaced with a footbridge in 1951.

Sygun Terrace / Tai Sygun is a single terrace of ten quarry workers’ cottages built c.1860 by Ormsby-Gore of Brogyntyn estate.  

All ten cottages are Grade II listed buildings.

Each unit is set behind its own low rubble-walled and railed forecourt garden. Of rubble construction with modern slate roofs and simple end chimneys with cornice bands. Nos 1 and 2 are stepped-up from the remainder and are continuously roofed; nos 3 to 10 are also under a shared roof. Of the latter, nos 3, 4 and 5 are rendered and whitened and those, together with nos 6, 8, 9 and 10, have single-storey modern gabled porches. All doors are modern, mostly part-glazed. The windows are all modern: those to nos 1, 2, 3, 7, 9 and 10 have copies of the original 16-pane unhorned sashes; those to nos 4, 5, 6 and 8 have plain sash approximations. There are modern extensions to the rear of all the cottages.  

Listed for its special interest as a large, mid C19 terrace of quarrymen’s cottages mostly retaining good vernacular character and in a prominent riverside setting within this well-preserved village centre.
