Portmeirion- Town Hall

By mickp
Clough Williams-Ellis built Portmeirion from 1925 to 1975 on a peninsula off the coast of Snowdonia to show how 'the development of a naturally beautiful site need not lead to its defilement'. He fought for Beauty - "that strange necessity". Portmeirion is owned by a Registered Charity called The Second Portmeirion Foundation and managed by Portmeirion Limited.
This was also the setting for the cult TV programme 'The Prisoner'

Hi Mick, I was at Portmeirion on Sunday, interesting place and great photo opportunity. Good colours and lighting on this one.

Hi Mick, very good composition with the steps leading you up to the pillars and the tower beyond. Visited here a few years ago and thought it was an interesting place.

Lovely shot, Mick
I thought it was a spa or another health caring place, not an administrative building: it's so pleasant for looking.
Thank you for your comments.
