Report - Anglesey Roadside Derps (Oct, 2019)

A collection of little things I came across while driving round Anglesey looking at mills.
I haven’t seen pictures of these, but maybe some of the houses are known - there’s certainly no shortage of small-scale wreckage in rural Wales.
After a while I stopped pulling over for this sort of stuff.

Beecroft, Valley (53.282062, -4.561865). An old house almost opposite a Spar where I was buying a sandwich.
There has been a planning application for demolition.
It’s a pigeon-infested hellhole - my type of place.

























Air Raid Shelters, Valley (53.258460, -4.547711). Just a few bumps in the grass near the airfield.
There’s a post on here with history but no pictures, https://www.28dayslater.co.uk/threads/raf-valley-aug-16.105520/.







Glan-rhyd, between Llanrhyddlad and Llandeusant (53.360810, -4.503465).
I haven’t attempted to find any history but it was presumably a farmhouse.
External from street view since I forgot to take one.





















Round the back are sheds, a little sailing boat and either an RV or ambulance covered in brambles.




Ysgubor-ddegwm, near Bethel (53.205695, -4.392057).
Named according to an old map - ysgubor-ddegwm apparently means a tithing barn.
Nothing inside except a chair, a bed and what I assume is a roosting box in the rafters.













Tyn-graig Farm, near Newborough (53.160341, -4.362623).
Seems to have been vacant for about a decade; other than that no history.

:cool: Very nice ensemble there. The first house looks a decent explore tbh in derp terms. Also like the farm houses too. But especially liked Ysgubor+ddegwm , heard of ghillie suits, and seen some pretty unique survival shelters built to hide. But thats one hell of a ghillie house lol. :cool::thumb

nice finds!

fyi, youre not missing much if you can't read the postcard . . .

"Dear Dad & Rob,
Lovely place, plenty to see and do.
Been on the beach today, not as nice as Llanddwyn of course!
Ann sends her best regards.
Bye for now."

Cheers for the translation - I knew someone on here would oblige!
