Notes on MAESGLAS, Ceredigion 2010

Nestled on a valley side and sheltered by mature hardwoods, Maesglas now stands empty. It has not been empty long but one feels it needs to be lived in soon, if it's to survive another harsh winter. Peering through the windows boxes of toys hint at the last owners life. The outbuildings look as if at some point they had been converted into living accomodation. It would be a shame if this house lays forgotten. True, it is set in a barren landscape. The winters are servere on the Cambrian Mountains. The summers however are subliminal.

Photo comment By paul sweet: Hi Paul, lovely pictures. can't believe why people would just get up and leave these places. do any coe up for sale or can you just claim squatters rights lol!! its a shame these lovely buildings go to ruin
Photo comment By Peter Natt: Maes Glas used to be my closest neighbour when I was the Easter and Summer warden of Tyncornel Youth Hostel in the 1960/1970's. I used to treck over there on a pony and they would give me a loaf of freshly made bread. It used to be a Pony Trecking Centre when I lived up there.
Photo comment By Denise lomax: I used to come to Maesglas every year from 1977 as an 11 year old to 1982 sometimes 4 times a year, pony trekking. I have fantastic memories of Pat, Mervyn and Sally and the amazing countryside we rode in. I returned about 4 years ago and was devastated to see Maesglas in such ruin. It was heartbreaking. What a fabulous place. Glad I saw it for real before these pics, I would never have believed it. I would love to give life back to Maesglas with family, horses, sheep, dogs, chickens and peacocks. This place was my dream home.
Photo comment By Sandra Luff: I also used ot go pony trekking there every year for about 3 in the 1970's - about the same time as Denise! Great place and very fond memories. So sorry to see it is in the state.
Photo comment By Peter Natt: Sadly Pat passed away last year (2014). She had been living in France.
Photo comment By Lotti Rains: I am another one who used to go Pony Treking there with my parents from the mid 70's to early 80's. I wonder if we met Denise and Sandra! I remember those days with great fondness. We were talking about the area last night after watching something on tele and I just had to look it up. Sad to see it if a ruin and sad to hear that Pat died last year! Happy memories!
Photo comment By Ifan Evans: FYI- rhosyrhiw has now been restored and is lived in. It was owned by my grandparents and we farm the land right around. It has never been and never was left to rot and fall down!!!!! And we also don't appreciate someone trespassing our land and posting pictures of a privately owned house online without any prior permission to do so. Please respect people's privacy and stop to think how you'd feel if someone did the same to a property you own!
Photo comment By Peter Natt: Is Rhosyrhiw the same as Maes Glas. If so well done for restoring it. Who lives there now? The pony I used to ride was Fairwell which was owned by Will Lewis of Blaen Dothea and then he moved to Prysg in Llandew Brefi. Sadly Will Lewis died some years ago.
