Ynysmaengwyn - A Spring Walk - Tywyn - Wales

From the late medieval period until the twentieth century, Ynysymaengwyn, situated about a mile from Tywyn beside the road to Bryn-crug, was the most powerful estate in the parish.

The estate was eventually gifted to the people of Tywyn sadly funds were unable to be found to fund the necessary repairs. The house was used for firefighting practice and army training and soon tragically had to be demolished, although a dovecote and a walled garden still survives. Ynysymaengwyn is now a Trust run by the trustees, with part of the land used as a caravan and camping park.

The history of Ynysymaengwyn is fascinating and I have included some links below if you are interested in reading more about the estate.  The purpose of my post today is not however to write up a potted history but to share with you photographs taken by me on a recent walk around the estate.

In doing so I hope to encourage those of you that are ever in this beautiful area to include Ynysymaengwyn in your explorations of the area.

I hope you enjoyed your virtual stroll around Ynysmaengwyn.  Photographs used are all my own, please ask if you wish to use any of them. I will be happy for you to do as long as you credit them to me LindyLouMac.
