History

Pwllhalog smithy appears to post-date the descent of Pwlhallog from gentry to farm status at the end of the C18.

Exterior

An informal range of low buildings at the south side of the approach to Pwllhalog. The smithy and an open-fronted shed are to the right, with a sheeted roof on original timber purlins; to the left are three open-fronted stalls with slated roof. The stonework is the local axe-dressed limestone.

Interior

The hearth, bellows, and a smoke hood above the hearth remain in the smithy.

Reasons for Listing

An unusual surviving example of a farmyard smithy.
