Book

Cumming soon

Over the past year and a half I have been putting together a book of the crumbling historic houses of Wales. This has been an ambition of mine for many years. Travelling around the Welsh countryside I photographed the impressive remains of the great houses that lie dotted around Wales.
This experience led me to some beautiful parts of Wales. I have visited a mix of different styles of derelict mansion, from gothic revival, to neo Palladian as well as fortified castle style houses.
As well as photographs the book contains a written account of finding the houses, my initial impressions of them and a little history and I also try to guess what the future has in store for these buildings if a restoration plan could be achieved.
The book is now in its final stages.

    Hi just found your blog via Spencer Beale. I absolutely love it. My passion is painting crumbling houses just like these. I did some work for Mark Baker up at Brynkir, and just wish there was some way I could record and paint some of this beauty before it disappears! I have a web site which is http://www.lizbolloten.co.uk and a Facebook page, Liz Bolloten Art. These buildings are so very important…. With best wishes Liz Bolloten.

    • Hi Liz, Thank you.
      I found your painting of Brynkir, it’s great what an amazing building it is. Your right these buildings are so important, we must continue to paint, photograph and record them before sadly the inevitable happens and some of them are lost forever.
      Regards
      Tim
