Plas Glynllifon. This was the seat of the Newborough family until 1948 when death duties forced them to sell the estate. In 1954 an agricultural college was established in the parkland, which today, in an expanded form, is known as Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor. The main house was built in the 1830s by the 3rd Lord Newborough.
