Croglofft cottage, earlier C19, built on encroached common land and owned by Anelog farm. Also known as Mount Pleasant and Mownt. Shown in an old photograph with a thatched roof. Not marked on 1844 Tithe Map.
Cottage, whitewashed rubble stone with grouted slate roof and whitewashed stone end stacks, larger and square to left. Small, single-storey with centre half glazed door and 4-pane sash each side, the right window spaced further from door. Slab lintel to left window, timber lintels to door and right window. Left end built into bank, right end small tilting 4-pane loft light.
Typical small croglofft interior with pine beam over left end fireplace, ladder access to loft over right end and painted board partition below to unheated lower room.
Included as a good and unaltered example of a croglofft cottage, one of a group on Mynydd Anelog that form a coherent vernacular group representing a good example of a commons-encroachment settlement.
