Brecon Bach

Jan Tarrant comments:

"Lilliput Lane Brecon Bach was introduced in 1986 - therefore it is one of the very earlier models and "STYLED on the "Local Vernacular".

 A POSSIBLE for the styling - it shows A "typical Brecon (Area) House" with all the attributes of - "LL Brecon Bach". The location of the photo - on A 40, at Trecastle, a few miles from Brecon.

The model displays a right hand additional "archway" - perhaps this was added "to enhance" (this) very early Lilliput Lane Model.

"Mike and Jan saw quite a few houses showing this styling in the Brecon/Brecon Beacons area".

Another possibility is Carno Farm

The model shows the canal, the tramway, the Pen Y Darren machine and 2 buildings which we believe represent the ends of the tramway.

LH building on model:

 Navigation House, Cardiff Road

Abercynon, CF45 4RR

RH building:

Labelled "Pen Y Darren Ironworks".

We're not sure if any buildings still exist.

"This tramway ran from the canal at Navigation House (now Abercynon) on the Glamorgan canal to Merthyr Tydfil and the Pen-y-darren ironworks by Dowlais. The tramway was built to replace a section of the canal which had many locks and consequently took a lot of time to travel along."

Plas Brondanw gatehouse cottage


Gatehouse to the estate of architect Sir Clough Williams Ellis (who designed the village of Portmeirion)

JRS suggests it may be the building indicated below

Plas Brondanw is located at Carreg Llanfrothen. Take the A4085 road from the center of Penrhyndeudraeth towards Beddgelert. Then take a right turn to Croesor (beyond the B4410 crossroad) past a gatehouse archway, following the signposts. The gardens are through double gates on the left about 200 yards up the hill. They are open daily from 9am-5pm, with a nominal entrance fee to be deposited in an honesty box. The money goes towards upkeep of the gardens. The house itself is not open to the public.

Note from Roland Kok "We visited St. Govan chapel and were suprised to find it on a live military shooting range.

In the weekends there are no problems."
