An Anglesey gateway for the Royal Welsh


The new livestock entrance, Porth Môn has been designed by local Radnorshire architect, Mike Garner.

The tower represents the Anglesey windmills and the sweeping roof line represents the Menai Suspension Bridge, these two elements have been cleverly designed to form a single structure. Funded by the Anglesey Feature County 2013, the new entrance will be will be opened by Mr Wyn T Jones, last year’s president, this morning (Monday 21 July).

We are very appreciative of the effort the feature counties go to each year to raise money for the society.” says Steve Hughson, Chief Executive of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society.

“We are committed to continually improving our iconic site and the feature county system is a key element of this strategy. Porth Môn, Anglesey gateway, is in fact the main entrance to the showground for 361 days of the year and the impressive stone and oak structure is a fitting tribute the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society and the county of Anglesey.”

The building contains a membership office which will be used throughout the show.

The showground is also benefiting from a new sheep building, which has allowed the re-introduction of the any other breed class and helped the society accommodate the record number of sheep entries at this years show.

This new hall has been funded by the Breconshire Feature County 2012, along with the newly named Twr Brycheiniog, the tower section of the Green Pavilion which has recently be fitted with a new lift.
