This dower house was built in 1856/57 for Lady Elizabeth Love Jones Parry of the Madryn Estate. The structure is a superb Victorian Gothic mansion and a Grade II* listed building. Plas Glyn-y-Weddw has long been associated with art as it was purpose built to house the widow’s own art collection. With its magnificent Jacobean staircase, hammer beam roof and 10 airy gallery spaces, it rightly bears the name Gallery in the Vale of the Widow. Indeed Lady Love Jones Parry’s ghost is occasionally seen walking the upper landings. | Today the Gallery is a thriving Arts Centre, with its own picture and print collection and an important display of Swansea and Nantgarw porcelain on loan from the Andrews family, descendants of Solomon Andrews who first opened the Gallery to the public. | It also houses two celebrated sepulchral monuments of local Welsh saints from the 6th Century and an exhibition of the mansion’s history.
