    Hi Mr B
    Great set of photos and fabulous location. What a grand old building - even after such a disasterous fire. Thanks Tony

    Good grief, how on earth did i miss this post? :o sorry :(

    What an absolutely beautiful building. I bet it was stunning when it was lived in both as a home, and also as a school.

    So much plasterwork still left there. and love the gothic stonework, and the stained glass windows that are still intact. the conservatory looks gorgeous, and the stairs.

    Awesome. Will have a search for any pics of it when it was built or lived in now.

    Cheers Mr B, brilliant pics.

    :) Sal

    I was up at Hafodunos at the weekend (it's up for sale again - offers invited) and it hasn't changed much, apart from that a few more bits of it have been nicked.
