History

The Llanrhaeadr almshouses were erected by Jane, widow of Maurice Jones of Ddol and Llanrhaeadr hall in 1729. The foundation provided for eight houses and gardens for poor elderly folk of the parish. The complex was conceived as an H-shaped block with a central gabled porch giving access via a covered passage to a large walled garden at the rear. The eight units were originally of one room each and had shared chimneys; their entrances were from the passage, rear and sides, thereby ensuring that the facade appeared as a unified whole. In 1820 the great great nephew of the foundress, William, second Baron Bagot of Blifthfield in Staffordshire, and Pool Park and Bachymbyd in Denbighshire, repaired the almshouses and made minor alterations, notably to the chimneys and openings. The complex was further restored in 1963 and is currently divided into four units.
