SN2142 : Garnon's Mill Road, Cilgerran

taken 7 years ago, near to Llechryd, Ceredigion/Sir Ceredigion, Great Britain

Garnon's Mill Road, Cilgerran
Garnon's Mill Road, Cilgerran
The road was built by Benjamin Hammet of Castell Malgwyn, at the end of the C18, to replace the original Llechryd to Cilgerran road which ran through his property, see SN2143 : Castell Malgwyn tunnel, looking east. Such were the days when the re-routing of an inconvenient highway, along with the removal of other undesirable features such as peasants' dwellings, could be effected by the rich and powerful without let or hindrance. As put by Oliver Goldsmith in The Deserted Village:
The man of wealth and pride
Takes up a space that many poor supplied;
Space for his lake, his park's extended bounds,
Space for his horses, equipage and hounds.
