This book tells the story of five of the most significant estates in the Crickhowell area—the history of the houses (some long gone), the families that occupied them, and the varied uses to which the estates were put.

From the Civil War to the Green Man Festival, from Charles II’s courtiers to ironmasters of the Welsh valleys, the lives of these ‘Great Houses’ have tracked the social and economic changes of the centuries.
