Llanddwyn Island

It being our last day in Anglesey, we went down to the beach at Llanddwyn for a last look, this summer, across the beach at the lighthouse, long disused and boarded up in March 1973, and what remains of St. Dwynwen, an early medieval chapel which was abandoned in the seventeenth century and which Clough Williams-Ellis proposed restoring in 1906, not long after he had left the AA:-

    Fantastic photos – how sad they will be the last until next year.

    Clough Williams – Ellis built two cottages opposite the Tattenhall Centre of which I was Principal in the the 1970s, and of course he set up the Portmerion pot bank in Stoke.
