Dingle Site, now known as Dingle Curve, was a Deviation construction site started in the summer of 1969[1] beyond Barn site, the two of which now form Barn Cutting. The two were joined in late August 1970.

Dingle curve is the second tightest on the FR mainline (after Tyler's Curve),[2] and is the location of the 10 mile marker from Porthmadog.

There is a particularly elegant pair of dry stone sheep creep portals under the line at this point, built by one of the Deviationists.
