Llantrithyd Place, next to church of St. Illtyd

"Llantrithyd Place was one of the great 16th Century Mansions of the Vale of Glamorgan. Formerly the seat of the Bassets, and subsequently of the Aubreys, is now in ruins, it was a fine specimen of the style that prevailed in the reign of Henry VI., with later additions, and is stated by tradition to have afforded an asylum, during the Commonwealth, to many great and learned men of the Church of England, by whom academical degrees were here conferred."
