Portmeirion was designed and laid out by the celebrated architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis (1883-1978) following his purchase of the estate, then called Aber Iâ, in 1926. The village evolved over several decades and was still being added to in the 1970s.
One of the more substantial of Sir Clough's corrugated iron structures, built after 1953; in his declining years CWE is said to have often sat in this shelter.
