Tre-newydd, Pencaer
Tre-newydd, Pencaer
One of a number of substantial old farmsteads dispersed across this windswept headland often with sections of the building replaced or extended over the generations in a variety of styles and materials.
Tre-newydd was one of the Pencaer farms overrun by the French invaders after they landed below Carregwasted.

From Edward Law's 1888 account of the event:
"The plunder taken consisted chiefly of eatables. The invaders seem especially to have affected poultry; and tales used to be told of how they boiled geese in melted butter and washed them down with huge draughts of port wine, large quantities of which were to be found in all the houses, as a Portuguese vessel had lately been wrecked and the cargo stolen by the country folk."
