Ruin above Abermawr
Ruin above Abermawr
Although this would be a wonderful position for a house, commanding the whole of Abermawr Bay, there is no evidence that this ruin was ever a dwelling, despite the fine masonry employed in its construction. There are a series of joined stone sheds without windows, and an enclosed yard with rounded wall ends.

According to information gratefully received from local historian Roy Lewis: this ruin was in fact the stable block for Tregwynt mansion. Nearby is the remains of Llewellyn's well, still flowing strongly. Just below there was the crossing point for Brunel's rail track, accidentally found by a local farmer when recovering some cattle that had strayed into the bog. When Brunel was active the small stream had access to the sea. The bog was created during the great gale of 1859 when the pebble bank arrived blocking the stream's entry point.
