Llanarchaeron part 2

Llanarchaeron is an 18th century Welsh gentry estate which has survived almost unchanged. If I had been allowed to go in I could have shown you inside the house and walled garden which used to grow produce for the estate which was self sufficient. The home farm is still a working farm with Welsh black cows, Llwenog sheep and rare Welsh pigs.
The Villa was designed in the 1790's by John Nash. It has it's own service courtyard, dairy, laundry, brewery and salting house.
John Nash was born on the 18th January 1752 the son of a Welsh millwright. He was also responsible for Regent St in London and Buckingham Palace and also the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. He died 13th May 1835.
But after walking 1.5 miles with the Bald Puppy we had to turn round and go back because there was a sign which said no dogs . Which was probably just as well as we didn't get back to the car till nearly 4 o'clock and none of us had had any lunch. So Auntie Jane and She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed and Bald Puppy had fish and chips and I had a pouch of cat food.
