Gwynedd - Pwllheli
Pwllheli is a community and the main market town of the Llŷn
Peninsula (Welsh: Penrhyn Llŷn) in Gwynedd, north-western Wales. It
had a population of 3,861 in 2001 of which a large proportion, 81
per cent, are Welsh speaking. Pwllheli is the place where Plaid
Cymru was founded. It is the birthplace of Albert Evans-Jones -
Cynan - the Welsh poet.
The town grew around the shipbuilding and fishing industries, and
the granite quarry at Gimlet Rock
During the 1890s, the town was developed by Solomon Andrews, a
Cardiff businessman. This work included the Promenade, roads and
houses at West End. A tramway was built linking the town to
Llanbedrog. The trams ran until 1927 when the section of track
between Carreg-y-Defaid and Tyddyn-Caled was seriously damaged by a
storm. Andrews ran the Cardiff Road section in 1928, and offered to
sell the tramway to Pwllheli Corporation at the end of the season,
but they did not take up his offer. He then sold the assets, and the
Corporation removed the tracks during the winter of 1928/29.
