Y Lasynys Fawr Mansion House
Friends of Ellis Wynne
Y Lasynys Fawr, Harlech, Gwynedd, is an important Welsh cultural site. The birthplace of Ellis Wynne, a Welsh clergyman and author of an influential piece of literature, Visions of the Sleeping Bard published in 1703.
Friends of Ellis Wynne are responsible for the Mansion House. Their aim is to enable the local community to use the house for cultural events. They intend to increase visitor numbers and are developing plans for a new interpretation centre. To develop a sustainable management system our Ecological Engineering team conducted a biodiversity assessment of the grounds. The final report contains information on the surrounding habitats, the local plant and animal species, management plan, and the importance for sustaining biodiversity. This information will be available on public interpretation boards. Y Lasynys Fawr can be part of a network of businesses that encourages attractions to work together enhancing the visitor experience and encouraging longer stays.
