Llanerchaeron ladies take centre stage

Llanerchaeron: National Trust to exhibit stories of women who shaped the Georgian estate

VISITORS are being invited to walk in the footsteps of the women that lived, worked, and transformed the charming Georgian estate of Llanerchaeron.

For the first time since the National Trust took on the property in 1990, this summer visits will focus on the stories of the women who made the estate their home, and contributed to its development and survival.

Visitors will uncover the secret Elizabeth Jones was keeping; get lost in the love story of Corbetta Powell; be inspired by the resilient Mary Ashby Lewis; and share in the passions of Annie Lewes.

Senior House Steward at Llanerchaeron, Rachael Hedge, said: “We’re really excited to be able to share the stories of these wonderful women that shaped the history of Llanerchaeron.”

The exhibition will run from June 5 – July 21. For more information, visit the National Trust website: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/llanerchaeron.

Llanerchaeron is a self–sufficient 18th–century estate, just outside Aberaeron. Designed in the 1790s, it is the most complete example of the early work of John Nash.

The estate consists of a service courtyard, walled kitchen gardens, pleasure grounds, parkland, and an ornamental lake, and working farm, where visitors can meet the Welsh Black battle, Llanwenog sheep, and rare Welsh pigs, as well as chickens, geese, and doves.
