English: Plas Glyn y Weddw Llanbedrog Glyn-y-Weddw was built for Lady Love Jones Parry as a Dower House in 1856, the Architect being Henry Kennedy. Although it is said she never slept here, she visited it weekly by carriage from Madryn, her home further in the peninsula. Glyn-y-Weddw was purchased together with other land by Solomon & F. E. Andrews at the sale of parts of the Madryn Estate on 11/12 August 1896. The horse tramway, along the sandhills from Pwllheli, was then extended from Carreg-y-Defaid to terminate opposite the entrance to Glyn-y-Weddw. The house was converted into an Art Gallery and the stable-yard roofed over to form a ballroom which was also used for afternoon teas. Trips by tram to Llanbedrog for the beach and to the house and grounds, and for the evening dances organised by F.E.Young, became a feature of a holiday at Pwllheli.
