INSIDE SIR CLOUGH'S HOUSE
Situated just a few miles from Portmeirion, the gardens of Plas Brondanw are popular amongst visitors to North Wales. However, the house at the centre of these gardens, for many years the home of Portmeirion creator Sir Clough Williams Ellis, is off-limits to the public. On January 26th 2005, Welsh TV channel S4C provided a rare glimpse of what lies inside the house when it was featured in the series "Y Ty Cymreig" ("The Welsh House").
The Portmeirion and Sir Clough influences in the interiors were plain for all to see, as the presenter of the show and his guest guided us round the house, briefly explaining the history of the building as they went. The Welsh-language item also included archive footage of Sir Clough walking in the gardens, and the views of a number of experts. Those with access to S4C, and it's digital arm S4C Digidol (available to SKY subscribers), got another chance to see the programme on Sunday 30th January.
