RECENT WORK - MARCH 2010

19th March 2010
Once the negatives are developed and prints are made the full selection of large format black and white work will be displayed in the relevant galleries but for the time being some colour snapshots including a return to some mansions after 15 years (Blaen Baglan & Neuadd Fawr) and also a first visit to Gellideg in Carmarthenshire. Also included are some smaller domestic dwellings.

Blaen Baglan. Much has gone since my first visit in 1997. Although all the ground floor doors and windows are boarded up, the west side of the house has collapsed and the view inside is quite depressing.

Neuadd Fawr. This visit, in comparison to my last on a very cold foggy day in Novemeber 1996, was a delight, quiet and bright and warm. The house naturally had deteriorated further but was still roofed and outer walls appearing solid.
The stable block was almost un-recognizable from how I had photographed it in 1996.

Extensive work at Edwinsford, the rubble cleared and work ready to commence on the house?

Another return to the hollowed site of Peterwell.






The Italianate mansion of Gellideg. The roof was removed by the owners and sold so to fund the building of a new home nearby in the 1950’s. Last photograph shows the stables and the small boating lake.

Just next to the Rheidol narrow gauge railway at Capel Bangor stands this tall house, Rhiwarthen–Uchaf. I have never seen any sign of life here but it appears to be good condition. Perhaps a holiday home?

Photo comment By Peter Cooke: brill pics,visited edwinsford 20 years ago cant believe it is still standing ,do you know its future.thanks pete
Photo comment By Henry: Rhiwarthen isn't abandoned. The house and land surrounding belong to local farmers. The interior has undergone a lot of remedial work and improvement over the last few years.
