Location

Porthmadog is a harbour town rich in maritime history and Welsh has been the principal language around the area for hundreds of years. The town is also the home of the famous Ffestiniog Steam Railway and the Welsh Highland Railway. It is a bustling town close to the Snowdonia National Park with numerous local specialist shops, national chain stores and places to eat and drink. There is a Swimming Pool and leisure centre and golf course in Morfa Bychan.

Around Porthmadog is some splendid mountainous scenery, forestry, rivers and public footpaths and country walks.  Magnificent sandy beaches are located along the Cambrian coast and Portmeirion Italianate village is within approx 3 miles and some medieval castles are within short driving distance.

ELISEUS WILLIAMS ( Known by his bardic name of Eifion Wyn ; 1867 - 1926 ), poet .

His parents came from the Eifionydd countryside, but he himself was born at Porthmadog 2 May 1867 and spent the last thirty years of his life as clerk and accountant in the office of the North Wales Slate Co. in Porthmadog. He had been a schoolmaster for a short time — at the Board School, Porthmadog and at Pentrefoelas . About 1889 he began to preach in Independent chapels but refused all calls to the ministry. He wrote a great deal of poetry both in the classical and ‘free’ forms — awdlau, cywyddau, englynion, lyrics, hymns and satires — and won a number of chairs in local and provincial eisteddfodau, as well as prizes at the national eisteddfod, at which he also acted as an adjudicator.

His best known work in the classical form is an awdl, ‘ Y Bugail ’ (the best entry in the opinion of one adjudicator, Tafolog, q.v. , for the chair competition at the Liverpool national eisteddfod, 1900), and his host of englynion, many of which were successful at the national eisteddfod. As far as the ‘free’ forms were concerned, his reputation as a lyricist was established by his ‘ Maes a Môr ’ lyrics. He published Ieuenctid y Dydd 1894 and Telynegion Maes a Mor 1906 ; Caniadau'r Allt 1927 and O Drum i Draeth 1929 were posthumously published under the editorship of Harry Edwards of Porthmadog . Eifion Wyn was the author of the words in a children's hymn-book, Tlws y Plant, published at Llanwrtyd.

In 1919 the University of Wales gave him the degree of M.A., honoris causa . His hobbies were fishing, politics (Liberal) and billiards . He died 13 Oct. 1926 at Porthmadog and was buried in Chwilog cemetery, Eifionydd
