    Nice job. Looks like an interesting place. I really like the angle you chose in #3, the colors are also nice and vibrant :)

    Nice shots. Sometimes the history adds to a shot, I would not take it as boring. Maybe Tom Jones was born there.

    thanks canoncan and ghoste! actually there is a very funny story behind it! it was built in 1475 by two outlaw brothers, they were told that if they could build a rough house overnight and have smoke coming from the chimney by dawn they could claim the freehold land,and the boundary was extended by throwing an axe from each corner of the building, and where it landed that was the boundary.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Far from ugly in my opinion.
    Very cool lookin place. I like Wales; very interesting place.
    Nice shots, nice saturation.

    Good images, well framed. I don't know about ugly cause I would like to live in that house, I would say it has real character. Good story
