"I get to meet Sharon Penman and the other writers, and to chat about history :-) Now thats a joy. This place is incredibly special. Lady Johan (correct spelling) had her affair with William de Braose here, and Llywelyn hanged De Braose at the foot of the Garth. Johan died here in 1237, their son Dafydd ap Llywelyn died here in 1246, lady Eleanor de Montfort died here in childbirth on19th June 1282 giving birth to Gwenllian. No ghosts, but a definate sense of great events happening at this place.
Have you read Edith pargeter's Brothers of Gwynedd. Also set in part in the Palace of Aber Garth celyn. Hugs Kathryn xx

 



  I have just talked to the owner of the Palace of Aber Garth the above correspondence is from face book.  I am on Sharon Penmans  Fan Page that's how we started talking.  I am more than star struck .

 ETA...  See more about it on Lady D's Blog Spot    http://despenser.blogspot.com/
