    Default Gellideg Manor


    Have you ever got the feeling that you have stumbled upon a little gem, it's not on any map & not many of the locals know about Gellideg! When I heard of it's existance I searched high & low & when I first saw it all I could say was wow! After weeks of trying to trace the owners of the land that this little gem sits upon I got the green light to have a look around & take a few pix. I don't know much about the house excpet that it has been empty since about 1946. After being in mothballs for about 10 years the lead was taken from the roof & the rain came in, the end was in sight. The then owner asked the local builder to demolish the whole thing and in return he could have the salvage as payment. He stripped the inside & never came back to demolish the walls, nice one! More pix & history to follow as soon as I get them.

    What a beautiful building, not heard of this one (at least, I don't think I have. ). Glad the building didn't go back to demolish the rest of the building. very nice pics of a gorgeous building.

    Nice work,

    What a great place and such a shame it has gotten to the state it is. Wonder why it was left like that. the grounds look reasonable as well :)

    Fantastic find...love the bit that looks like a courtyard, with the tree in the circular thingy (ornamental pond, perhaps?). Look forward to seeing more. Good stuff. :)

    Just my sort of place - excellent job! The stonework is beautiful and it looks like quite an enchanting location too. :)
