The Sail Loft
The Sail Loft
Built in the mid C19 and shown on the 1871 Tremadog estate plan and 1888 Ordnance Survey. It supplied sails to the Porthmadog shipbuilding industry, which flourished from the 1850s to the 1870s, then enjoyed a revival between 1891 and 1913, when Porthmadog became well-known for building 3-masted schooners. It was probably occupied by William Jones, listed as a sail maker in 'Britannia Terrace' in 1871.
