Portmeirion 3

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'
