Penrhyn Arms portico
Penrhyn Arms portico
Formerly the portico at the main entrance to the Penrhyn Arms Hotel built in 1799 by Benjamin Wyatt. In 1884 it became the first home of the University College of North Wales. The University moved to new buildings in 1926 and the hotel was later demolished to enable the A5 to be re-routed slightly to the North. At the centre is a slate plaque reading: "1799-1884 Yma Y Safai Gwesty’r "Penrhyn Arms" Cartref Cyntaf Coleg Prifysgol Gogledd Cymru 1884-1926".
