| Events in Tremadog | 10 Places to Stay

Tremadog is a town that prior to 1800 did not exist and the fact that today is down to the vision of one man – William Alexander Madocks. He was born into a wealthy London family and despite growing up in fashionable English society he had strong links with North Wales, his family being landed gentry of several hundred years standing. With inherited land and some other purchases he was able to put his plans into action. The area around the River Glaslyn was salt marsh and Madocks was well aware of the possibilities of draining fenland and he set about the task with a dream of the future. In order to reclaim the land he had bought from the sea he ordered the construction of a great embankment, now known as the Cob. This grand scheme was in order to ensure the future of Tremadog by ensuring that it would be part of the London to Dublin route. He wasn’t to know that a decision would be made in 1810 to concentrate on Holyhead instead. Madock’s vision was to include shops, industry and homes and importantly he was keen on the appearance of the buildings. By 1805 the first buildings were complete and it is believed that these were (and still are) located on Dublin Street and within the year he had changed the name of the village to Tre Madoc. Tremadog is widely recognised as a brilliant example of town planning, the layout, siting and buildings were all designed to create the impression of a borough and by 1811 the historic centre of Tremadog was complete and today very little has changed. In 1991 the Friends of Tremadog, a Historic Buildings Preservation Trust, was established to protect and preserve the historical and structural heritage of Tremadog. With the benefit of a seaside location and easy access to other historic and scenic parts of the Lleyn Peninsula we should be grateful for the effort and vision that William Alexander Madocks had.
