PORTMEIRION VILLAGE

For those who haven't come across Portmeirion before, it is a private resort located in North Wales, the buildings are mostly in use as hotels and holiday cottages. It was built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925-1976. The architecture is usually described as Italianate, with some of the buildings designed by Williams-Ellis and some rescued from other locations. It is open to day visitors although some areas are only accessible to guests, all my pictures were taken from public access locations.

Until I get around to filling out the history of the place and the buildings, please bear in mind the comment of the founder:

"Portmeirion is intended to speak for itself."
-- Clough Williams-Ellis

I hope my pictures can do the same.

For now, please enjoy the images I have uploaded so far.

I always appreciate comments on my work, so any messages left will be welcome. If you think my work justifies a vote, that would be great too. Thanks.
