Ruined barn at Esgair Fraith Farm, Clywedog Plantation
Ruined barn at Esgair Fraith Farm, Clywedog Plantation
Esgair Fraith, in the North of this square is one of several abandoned hill farms in this area which were abandoned in the 1940s and planted with trees by the Forestry Commission in the '50s. The farm has long ago fallen into ruin, but it is still possible to walk around the buildings and find reminders of their past inhabitants, such as shoe leather, sherds of china and the end of a child's iron bedstead. In 1995, this was the site of Brith Gof's "Tri Bywyd", an innovative piece of 'archaeological theatre'. Beyond the ruins can be seen the valley of the Nant Clywedog Isaf, a tributary of the River Teifi which gives the plantation its name.
