SM7726 : Llysgenydd

taken 11 years ago, near to St David's, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

The name of this dwelling - Kenneth's court - suggests it may originally have been connected with the mediaeval ecclesiastical settlement around St David's, either as a monastic farm, a devotional building or a feudal court. Hunkered down on the edge of Dowrog Common, its lime-washed walls, mortar-rendered roof and small windows indicate it was constructed to withstand the winter gales that sweep in from the coast. The externally placed chimney looks like a blend of the so-called Flemish type (large round chimneys built on the outside of 16th and 17th century houses but named after the earlier settlers in the area), with the more traditional 'simne fawr'.
