More about this scene

At the time when Harlech was built by Edward I in the 1280s, the sea lapped around the base of the rocky crag on which it stands. Owain Glyndwr took the castle in 1404, but his attempt to bring independence to Wales came to an end when Henry V stormed Harlech and captured Owain and his family.

My late husband was the professional at Royal St Davids for many years and the only golfer so far to have been both Welsh Amateur Champion and Welsh Professional Champion twice. We lived at 'Plas Owain' which is the house just above the Golf Links on the curve of the road up the hill. It was built in 1907.
