Plas Machen
Adeiladwyd Plas Machen gan Morgan o Fachen oddeutu 1490. Efe a arwiniodd gwyr Gwent, a oedd yn enwog am eu bwau hir, ym Mrwydr Bosworth (1485). Ychwanegwyd at y plas dros y ganrifoedd ond dymchwelwyd rhan helaeth o'i asgell ddwyreinol rhywbryd yn ystod y gorffennol. Y Plas oedd cartref y Morganiaid cyn iddynt adeiladu Tredegar House.

Plas Machen was built c1490 by Morgan of Machen who led the men of Gwent, who were famous for their longbows, at the Battle of Bosworth (1485). Additions have been made over the centuries but a large portion of the east wing has, in the past, been demolished. The property was the seat of the Morgan Family prior to the construction of Tredegar House.
