Tour Group at Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway

This morning, we departed our lodgings in Porthmadog and embarked on a trip encompassing two attractions as follows:

First to the unique, architect designed village of Portmeirion which was built by architect Clough Williams-Ellis commencing in 1925 when he purchased the 70 acre site overlooking the Traeth Bach tidal estuary. Italianate architecture is augmented with an environment of lakes, temples and gazebos. We spent about three hours here with experience enhanced by the sunny weather.
