One of the area’s famous landmarks is to host a garden party later this month.

Gregynog Hall at Tregynon will host the party on Bank Holiday Monday, 29 August to support the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust.
 
Visitors will be able to wander the gardens, the former home of the altruistic Davies sisters, the Dell area and circular walk around the lily pond where Margaret Davies used to sit and paint.
 
There will be a rare opportunity to view the hall itself, where there will be an exhibition of photographs of the garden, taken in bygone years and Welsh tea will be served in the beautiful wood panelled Blayney Room, whilst listening to the piano being played in the senior common room.
 
Annette Dowling, from Gregynog Hall, said: “We are really looking forward to this lovely afternoon, which offers such a lot to the visitor, come rain or shine.”
 
Gregynog Estate, made famous by the art collecting Davies sisters, Gwendoline and Margaret, has been managed by the University of Wales for more than half a century.
