PENLLERGAER MANSION GROUNDS, Swansea 2018 - THE GLAMORGANS
Notes on PENLLERGAER MANSION GROUNDS, Swansea 2018

Dam & waterfall, long out of use - former ponds and sluice/engine houses all long ruinous.

Having recently moved to Swansea it was with great surprise that an entrance to Penllergaer Woods was only a five minutes walk away. Although not large, this former picturesque mansion site is well worth a visit. The mansion itself was demolished in the early 1960's and was replaced with a red brick council building which is both huge and currently empty.
Amongst the woods are waterfalls, lakes and a labyrinth of paths. Also a much ruined but fascinating walled garden. Overgrown, sometimes cut back, but soon re-growing. Elements of which are seen here; remnants of underground heating, stoves in basements, broken pieces of pipes.
