Notes on TY-UNNOS #4, Rhos-gelli-gron common, Pontrhydyfendigaid, Ceredigion 2015

A return to the area and I made an exposure of each property unless so little remained that it was not worthwhile. Hard to imagine that this was once a busy little community. I imagine all the houses were thatched, though all are stone with a few brick chimneys here and there. Only two of the properties were of two storey, the largest of which also had a separate cottage/barn at a right angle behind, no inter-connecting door but interesting nonetheless.
The rain lashed down when I reached there and I took shelter for a good ten minutes wondering if, indeed, the rain would stop. It slowed, so I went out, making a few exposures but the horizontal rain was covering my lens with a fine mist. Some of the pictures have been effected and therefore not printed. The rain did at last stop, the sun came out, my fingers were by this time red and raw but the sun soon thawed me and dried my equipment. By the time I returned to my car I was too dry and warm.

Previous notes TAI-UNOS, Rhos-gelli-gron common, Pontrhydyfendigaid, Ceredigion 2011

Late 18th century and set within small irregular field enclosures. Many, I counted seven individual properties – most too ruined and unworthy of photographing.

The final occupant of this small community left after World War Two.

(A Sunday school and chapel was built in 1886 for the growing population of this remote area.

Long ruined but planning had been granted and some work had begun but all seems abandoned.

A similar school house/chapel was built further down the valley on the road from Tregaron to Pontrhydyfendigaid in 1906 - this too is ruined).

These properties are considered to be ‘Overnight Houses’ and I do not know the names of each house hence I’ve called them Tai-unos #1 and #2 etc…
