Working in partnership with the Royal Commission, Dating Old Welsh Houses is a community-based history project focused on dating historic houses in the counties of North-west Wales and then compiling their house histories.
In the last three years over sixty houses have been successfully dated by the partnership project and revealed some remarkable results.
Numerous other houses have been dated and the results are now available on Coflein.
An analysis of these results in the context of the economic and social changes of the sixteenth century by Richard Suggett and members of the Dating Old Welsh Houses Group will be published by the Royal Commission in autumn 2014.
It is actively involved in recording buildings and architecture, and has organised dendrochronology to enable the origins of old houses in North Wales to be better understood.
The Project has also been able to show that these old houses are not restricted to Gwynedd but occur all over north west Wales.The house is in a remote location, surrounded by cloud topped mountains, which is where it gets its name from'He seems to have served in the navy, probably during World War II, as there was a navy belt buckle and a few photos of warships and navy personnel - unfortunately they were a bit too far gone to photograph!An old Land Rover sits on the land, completely wrecked.
