A Towering Achievement
Today when people win an award or title they might organise a party, or go out for a fine meal and crack open a bottle of champagne. Back in 1821 Joseph Huddart did all those things to celebrate being knighted at the coronation of George IV, but he also went a step further by erecting an impressive gothick tower in Cwm Pennant, Snowdonia.
If the building wasn’t such a finely crafted piece of neo-medieval architecture we could berate him for showing off. Viewers can see the tower as well as three other truly amazing homes on Y Tŷ Cymreig this week.
