The central building set in the 18 acres that is Trigonos is known as Plas Baladeulyn (the big house between two lakes). It was built as the home of one of the slate quarry owners and it remained a private home until its conversion into the Richard Wilson Arts Centre in the 1980’s named after the artist who had painted a picture of the valley in 1776.
The landscape is extraordinary not just for the stunning view of the Snowdon range, but also because when you turn your back on that view, you see the equally-but-differently stunning image of dark grey slate tips that are so characteristic of a landscape profoundly affected by the industrial revolution. This is not just a place between two lakes, it is a place between two worlds!
