Ty Mawr

Ty Mawr

Ty Mawr was given the outstanding honour of the 'Building of the Year' award by the RICS in 2000. This prestigious recognition of the standard of restoration of Ty Mawr was awarded for 'meticulous attention to detail and exceptional use of non-intervention techniques...Considerable credit is due to the team involved for their sheer determination to rescue this gem from imminent collapse.'

This rare medieval aisled house is located in a remote Welsh valley on the Powis Estate. It was built in 1460 and is now a 'Scheduled Ancient Monument.'
Dr Peter Smith advised on many aspects of the unique features of Ty Mawr during its recent restoration. The building now appears as it may have done in 1635 - the major difference being that it is now occupied by people, not livestock.

Powis Estate is responsible for Ty Mawr on a long lease. Oak for the restoration of the structural features of Ty Mawr was supplied by the Estate.
The building is open to the public and is sometimes the venue for community events.
Its lovely, yet remote location serves to emphasise Ty Mawr's link to an age long past.
