Richard Morris

Emeritus Trustee

To mark his retirement from the Management Board (2014), Richard Morris has been appointed Trustee Emeritus in celebration of his unique contribution to the saving and restoring of Penllergare. His connections with Penllergare stem largely from his passionate interest in photography, notably that of John Dillwyn Llewelyn, whose description of the pioneering orchid house eventually led to Richard discovering it in the walled gardens, so triggering the start of the Valley Woods project.The publication in 1999 of Richard’s Penllergare – A Victorian Paradise, (now a collectors’ item) raised the profile of the place to a wide and influential audience and the profits provided the initial capital for the Penllergare Trust.
