This may be the shortest report I have written so far - mainly because I cannot find any information or history about this farm house. All I know for sure is that Jon6D had spotted it a few weeks before, and we were passing one day so decided to take a look.... you never know?! Also, couldn't park anywhere nearby so walked through fields, climbed fences, through bog, brambles and a stream to get there (you know....the same old story:)). Luckily it was open so we entered. As usual, when you first walk in with expectations running high you are initially disappointed with seeing just a shell of a house. It takes a little while to settle down and start seeing what is left and appreciating the house for what it was.

Anyway, here are my pics -

I guess thats what you would call a traditional stone welsh cottage - looks very old but have to say it looks in pretty good nick structure wise , its all there and looks solid as a rock.
The stone spiral staircase is unuasual

I love South Wales. I was there over Christmas and I spotted loads of houses that looked derelict out in the fields with no roads leading to them. I wish I had the time to walk over to every one and have a look. This is a nice find :) great photos!

Nothing special about that house.

Actually there is - the construction. One has here another example of building on a budget and using the least expensive materials available to hand. Wooden staircases were expensive in materials and needed skilled joiners. A skilled mason - with the right size of rough stone available, would be able to construct a spiral staircase as he was putting up the wall work. Given a ready availability of rough stone, the cost would have been far cheaper than any wooden alternative in those days. A search through some of the old construction 'bills' of that time makes for fascinating reading - if one can find them!
