Bethesda is a town on the River Ogwen and the A5 road on the edge of Snowdonia, in Gwynedd, north-west Wales, colloquially called Pesda by the locals..It all started when the 'Bethesda Chapel' or (Capel Bethesda) was created in the 1800s and that chapel was created where Arafa Don on the Bethesda High street (A5) and a lot of buildings and civilization grew around it..Most of the town is to the east and north east of the A5 road, with housing packed onto the hillside in irregular rows...In its heyday, the population of Bethesda peaked at 10,000, but it is currently around 4,327 people (2001 census).. Current opportunities for employment in the town are limited: there are a few manufacturing businesses; most businesses are in the low-paid service sector and hospitality industry.. For employment with higher earning potential, residents tend to commute to towns along the North Wales coast.. Bangor is the most popular destination, but some will commute daily as far as Cheshire.. Because of the lack of degree-based employment opportunities, many young people move out of the area to places such as Cardiff and Manchester as soon as they are qualified..The architecture and layout of the town is largely utilitarian.. Most of the buildings are constructed of stone with slate roofs.. Some are constructed wholly of slate blocks, although such buildings tend to suffer from damp and structural slippage because the very flat and smooth surfaces of slate do not bind well to mortar..According to the UK Census 2001, 77.0% of the residents are Welsh-speaking, higher than the average for both Gwynedd and Wales as a whole..The name Rachub is thought to have come from Yr Achub, which would roughly translates as The Saving or Safe place..Bethesda is also mentioned in the 5th episode of the 3rd season of Showtime's Homeland...
