CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The Caernarfon Harbour Trust was established in 1793 and is the authority responsible for the control of navigation and the provision and maintenance of navigational aids in the area from Britannia Bridge to Caernarfon Bay. It is also the competent Harbour Authority responsible for the provision of pilotage throughout the Menai Strait. The Trust provides and maintains a number of moorings in the River Seiont and Port Dinorwic. Additionally, it also serves as manager for Victoria Dock Marina, Caernarfon. The structure of the Trust remained unchanged for nearly two hundred years until, following a public enquiry by the Department of Transport, the number of trustees was reduced to thirteen. J. Trevor Roberts of Caernarfon was appointed as the solicitor of the Caernarfon Harbour trust in 1934.
