The SYSTERNE / SISTER'S HOUSE, Minwear Forest, Canaston, Pembrokeshire 2009

A large (60ft?) corn barn with large porch, no windows only arrow slots, 12th century and also a large complex of smaller buildings all ruinous and overgrown.

A large mansion house was supposed to have stood in this small complex of buildings, the ruins dating from 15th - 17th century. Many walls and buildings litter this wooded area and i was unsure where this house would have stood, which incidently was supposedly also used as a hospital.

All set in beautiful ancient woodland no more than a stones throw away from the tidal river Cleddau.

Photo comment By David: The whole complex now sadly over grown and undistinguishable from out side the fencing
Photo comment By Sean Crockett: Visited the site on 07/12/2012, with it being Winter and the undergrowth died back, its probably the best time to see the full expance of the site.So sad that its had to fall into the condition its in, are there any photos of it when it was functioning.
Photo comment By Stephen Green: Thanks for the tip about the best time to see this historic ruin. But Sean, they probably didn't have Paul's level of photographic equipment in the 12th century!
