Restored Pilots' Cottages, Llanddwyn
Restored Pilots' Cottages, Llanddwyn
These 19th century cottages were built to house the pilots which guided ships in and out of the busy slate port of Caernarfon, [then, officially, called Carnarvon]. The pilots also manned the island's lifeboat which, between the inauguration of the service in 1840 and its withdrawal in 1903, saved over a hundred lives. The cannon in front of the houses was used for summoning the lifeboat crew.
