16) Tyn y Coed

Tyn y Coed, BarmouthTyn y Coed is a good example of the buildings erected during Barmouth’s first flush of success around 1800 and retains its early windows and detailing.

It was the birthplace of Rowland Owen Lloyd. During service in the 1st World War he received the Order of St Stanislaus of the 3rd degree for saving many ships loaded with ammunitions from a fire whilst iced up at Alexandrovsk, serving as Lieut. R.N.R. on the H.M.S. Albermarle. In 1919 whilst Captain of the Torpedo-Boat Destroyer Mallard  he was awarded an O.B.E.for his bravery in saving many lives after the Irish Mail boat The Leinster was torpedoed in the turbulent Irish sea on 10th October 1918. 

The ground floor of Tyn y Coed is now let as two characterful retail units.
