Photographs taken on my visit from Llandudno
on September 8th 2004

Part 1 - Bodnant Hall, The Upper Gardens & Terraces



This is a selection of photographs presented in two parts and all taken on September 8th 2004 in this important garden that occupies an area of over 80 acres. Most of the garden was first laid out by Henry Davis Pochin from 1874 onwards until his death in 1895.  Bodnant Hall had been built in 1792 but was remodelled by Pochin and on his death it was inherited by his daughter (whose husband became the First Lord Aberconway in 1911).  The garden, but not the Hall or other parts of the estate, was presented to the National Trust, with an endowment, in 1949.  The Hall remains the home of Lord Aberconway and members of his family continue to be actively involved in the management of the garden on behalf of the National Trust.
