Brick, unusual in this stone built area, was probably brought in by the tramroad. Stone L shaped wing may be an earlier house converted or a coachouse wing; it is now a separate dwelling used for holiday accommodation. Original name Brynderwen, this was also the name of the area before the advent of the railway.
