Plas Dinas Mawddwy (also known as Plas Buckley, Y Plas)6751

Introduction

At its heyday the estate extended to 4500 hectares of mountain and the house and park occupied most of the former village. There were exotic trees and shrubs, drives and lodges. On the terrace to the north and east of the house were seven elaborately planted geometric beds. To the west was a quadrangular geometrically-planted garden with a fountain at its centre and glasshouses against the walls on three sides. To the east the land sloped away to the lawn and the river. Parts of the site are now a caravan park.
