This dark and grey ruin at one time was a home to a family of eight, having spoken to one of the sons that grow up here, Emlyn Williams, he told me of fond times, sadly Mr Williams recently past away but did celebrate his 90th birthday, just above Rhewl near Llantysilio this farm would have been a hard place to live, especially in the winter.
