History
It was a residence of members of the princely dynasty of the Welsh kingdom of Powysand one of the taî'ruchelwyr(houses of the gentry) in late medieval Wales.
It subsequently came into the possession of the Ormsby-Gorefamily (Lord Harlech). Its English correspondent is sometimes given as Porkington. A manuscript known to have been in the possession of Brogyntyn in 1574 was a copy of the Hanes Gruf(f)udd ab Cynan.
The house itself is of brick dating from circa 1730 refaced and much added to between 1813–20 by the architect Benjamin Gummow.
It is noted for a portico of four giant unfluted Ionic columns with scrolls and pediment. Outside can be seen an arch with 2 pairs of unfluted Ionic columns. In the entrance hall survives an elaborately carved fireplace dated 1617.

Our Visit
Since many people have been here, we decided to take a trip their our selves. As we approached the site, we saw three other urban explorers that told us they had triggered sensors on previous visits. They had also triggered one of the sensors when we encountered them. Before gaining access we had to wait for the alarm to reset. Access to the building was quite difficult due to climbing being involved. While inside we found out for ourselves that the sensors in the main build didn't seem to be working. The building has a source of power going into it because most of the ground floor lights were functional. We did not get a chance to take pictures of the basement and outside because of time and the weather was not pleasant. Overall, the explore was well worth the 2 hour drive.

Nice pictures - Visited this location over the weekend, there was evidence of groundworks going on outside the building and the perimeter was fenced, still OK to get into though!

Part ? demolition started - just Google brogyntyn hall demolition should come up as first article (not sure if copy/links allowed)
Walked past yesterday, massive amount of scaffolding. Looks like a lot of improvements to lake and grounds, lots of new trees planted. Public Footpath has been diverted through woods, but probably an improvement on old route. Seems a shame, must have been grand 100 years ago.
