This extensive model farm was begun by the Assheton-Smith family in the later C19, using the wealth created from the Dinorwic Slate Quarries. This enabled them to carry out a programme of continual improvement to Vaynol Park.


Built of polygonal masonry, with a slate roof and ventilators. A low building with 5 bays of open fronted cartshed with segmental-headed openings, 3-bay stores to the left with square headed boarded doors and tall 12-pane windows, replacing the original part louvre - part small pane estate windows. Slit ventilators over openings. All openings have voussoirs forming flat arches with keystones. To the rear, an 8-arch hammel in a dog-legged lean-to, with cambered voussoired arches opening on to two gated yards formed with rubble walls on the E side. Now converted to small workshop units.
