Notes on THE SYSTERNE HOUSE/SISTER'S HOUSE, Minwear, Pembrokeshire 2011

A return to the Sister's House and all those hidden ruins within its fenced grounds. My previous visit had been early spring a few years ago and I was surprised by the thickness of undergrowth. Nettles swayed three foot high and the canopy of tree cover caused exposures of around 16 seconds on a bright but cloudy afternoon.

Classed as an Ancient Monument one can not help but feel that this complex of ruins, with some uncertainty of theses buildings purpose (a hospice for female pilgrims?), needs some loving care, the stone work must have suffered dreadfully over the last few harsh winters and one would have thought CADW would demand some sort of consolidation work on these important buildings. As it is they all stand, and will surely crumble and tumble, unprotected from the elements. This medieval village does however offer the explorer much delight and pleasure.
