Ffridd Gate was a station on the Corris Railway in Wales, serving the hamlet of the same name near to where the Afon Dulas meets the Afon Dyfi and the village of Llanwrin.

South of the station was the railway's bridge over the Dyfi, originally a wooden trestle construction and later a three-span steel bridge. The site of the bridge is now occupied by the Millennium Bridge for walkers and cyclists, providing a short-cut to Machynlleth.

The Centre for Alternative Technology lies about a mile north of the hamlet.
