History

Probably early-mid C19 stable, built on a plot of land named as Glan William on the tithe apportionment of the parish, 1840; owned by Maria Shaw and occupied by William Jones Esq.
William Gruffyd Oakeley (1790-1835) was only 21 when he inherited the Plas Tan-y-bwlch estate and set about an ambitious programme of improving the estate. This entailed new building in the village of Maentwrog and rebuilding or improving the existing buildings. In order to do so he opened a quarry near Gelli Grin from which was quarried the large lengths of brown stone present in so many of the village buildings.
Offered up for sale in the auction of the Plas Tan-y-bwlch estate, 1910, in Lot 12 'The Picturesque Rural Village of Maentwrog'. The property was described as Stable of 4 stalls with loft over and stable room, 'in hand' at the time of the sale, for an annual rent of £1-0s-0d (£1.00).

Exterior

Single storey stable block built of mortared rubble masonry including long stones in the build and as lintels. Slate roof with overhanging eaves and verges. There is a single boarded door under a shallow overlight with glazing bars; flanking windows are 2-pane lights over hit and miss ventilators.

Interior

The interior was not inspected at the time of the survey (June/July 2003).
