The Watch House, Porth Amlwch
This building with its small lighthouse was built around 1819 and extended in 1835. It was used mainly by hobblers who were responsible, amongst other things, for moving vessels in and out of the port, and was also a meeting place where captains met socially in the evenings to yarn.
