Llanerchaeron

Llanerchaeron, known as "Llanayron House" to its nineteenth-century occupants, is a grade I listed mansion on the River Aeron, designed and built in 1795 by John Nash for Major (later Colonel) William Lewis as a model, self-sufficient farm complex located near Ciliau Aeron, some 2½ miles south-east of Aberaeron, Ceredigion, Wales. There is evidence that the house replaced an earlier mansion. A later owner, William Lewes was the husband of Colonel Lewis's inheriting daughter.

The estate is now in the care of the National Trust. The neighbouring parish church of St Non—also redesigned by Nash—has registers of baptisms and burials dating from 1730 and marriages from 1754.

I am kind of waiting for the personal to come out and line up and welcome us to the mansion... What a place to live, wonderful.
Bill Phillips: It was of a size you could imagine living in Lady P
Astrid is right. Everything is readied for a fine welcome. And I see that the sky is cooperating!
Bill Phillips: It was a lovely day ginnie and this was the sort of house you could imagine living in

You need a parade, as in Ray's picture today, to cheer this place up
Bill Phillips: I prefer the more peaceful scene

an elegant looking manor house! I had cropped a bit of the foreground. I see a big turtle in the green background.
Bill Phillips: Hahahahaha I see what you mean Philine
It is a charming looking place Bill, I should be pleased to visit it one fine day.
Bill Phillips: You would enjoy it Chad and could present it in a totally different way from me....well from any normal person

Very elegant in its simplicity, Bill.
I'd like to look at the parish records I find them fascinating as Lisl will testify.
Bill Phillips: We didn't visit the church Pauline so I don't know if you can view the records
It looks like a modest sized mansion in a very fine setting.
Bill Phillips: It is a very pleasing house Brian. You would enjoy it

It looks a little austere, are there formal gardens to the back?
Bill Phillips: It is quite plain but was also a self sufficient working farm. More of the house inside in the next few days. There is a walled garden
it's a beautiful mansion Bill... but i sure would like to see what the original house was like....petersmile
Bill Phillips: I guess we will never know Peter
A very nice, simple structure.
Bill Phillips: Exactly Tom

A little austere perhaps but I could cope with that; I don't need anywhere too "in yer face" really.
I like the view of this one with the greenery on both sides.
Bill Phillips: It is a pleasant view isn't it?
