The main building of Talysarn Hall, Talysarn, Gwynedd. NPRN: 16874
Talysarn Hall, Gardens (NPRN: 86485) and associated outbuildings (NPRN: 31440) had already been recorded on Coflein but the continued deterioration of the main building meant that a photographic survey was required in order to record any architectural details before they were lost completely, together with the production of an updated Coflein entry for the Hall. None of the complex has any formal legislation to protect it, and consequently the record made by the Royal Commission is a vitally important resource.
The Hall predates the appearance of the large-scale quarry workings and originally sat adjacent to the main Talysarn to Nantlle Road, but the encroachment and enlargement of nearby Dorothea Slate Quarry (NPRN: 40539) removed the main road and eventually the complex became sandwiched between Dorothea to the south and the Blaen-y-Cae (NPRN: 40530) and Gallt-y-Fedw Slate Quarries (NPRN: 40552) to the north.
