Less than a year after I made my visit to Plas Gwynfryn I stumbled upon a photo on the internet showing the recent collapse of part on the front facade on the house. I could not help but think that time was running out for this house that appears to have no traceable owner, despite a search for one having taken place a while ago. The local council are seemingly reluctant to place a compulsory purchase order on the property, so until they decide to do so or the elusive owner comes forward the house will continue to decline.
While walking around the ruins of Plas Gwynfryn I had a feeling of unease I could not put my finger on the reason why.
What is going to happen to this building? Will the owner ever be found, or turn up to save or sell his crumbling old mansion? Only time will tell.
