Our book launched in 2017
Working closely with award winning author Sara Eade the book features Plas Tan-Yr-Allt and some of our famous former residents. Exclusive signed copies from the author are available to purchase here at The Plas.
William Madocks MP who lived here at Plas Tan-Yr-Allt was responsible for the construction of two local embankments in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The later embankment known as the Cob in Porthmadog allowed the transportation of slate from nearby Blanaeu Ffestiniog to be shipped worldwide. Madocks also founded our village of Tremadog and neighbouring town of Porthmadog.
Featured throughout the book are some of our famous former residents and visitors including romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, E.F Benson who wrote the Mapp & Lucia novels, A.C Benson the writer of the words for Land of Hope & Glory (which is sung every year at the end of the Proms), Elizabeth Billington the opera singer of her day, Ellen and Hilda Greaves the mother and aunt of world famous Portmeirion founder Sir Clough Williams-Ellis all to name but a few.
Possibly the most comprehensive book of its kind social historian Sara Eade has extensively researched William and his achievements as well as some of the people and places he knew, from original material where it exists.
This is Sara’s ninth book and is hard backed, in A4 format and contains 232 well-illustrated pages including maps and engravings as well as modern photographs.
Shelley’s Ale launched 2017
In homage to the romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley who lived here from 1812-1813.Our new beer Shelley’s Ale is now available to buy at the Llechwedd Slate Cavern’s Gift Shop. Each gift box contains 3x 500ml bottles with a unique description of Shelley and his time at The Plas.
The Romantic poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, came to North Wales in 1812. He and his wife settled at Tan y Allt in Tremadog, the home of MP and landowner William Alexander Madocks. Shelley arrived at a time whilst Madocks’ towns of Tremadog and Porthmadog were being developed and the Cob, which had breached earlier in the year, was under repair. Fascinated by what he saw he was keen to be involved but his involvement did not endear himself to all he met.
A possible assassination attempt took place at Tan y Allt in late February 1813 and as a result, Shelley and his wife left never to return. Shelley later went on to marry Mary Shelley the creator of ‘Frankenstein’.
Some writers have even suggested that the apparition Shelley saw during that fateful February night (known as Shelley’s Ghost) was the impetus behind Mary Shelley’s most famous creation.
Plas Tan-Yr-Allt Historic Country House now offers luxury accommodation where guests can wander in the footsteps of the Shelley’s and stay in one of the bedrooms ‘Shelley’s Theatre’.
