The Patti Pavilion

This was the winter garden of the Baron and Baroness Cederstrom. This was Adelina Patti’s name after her third marriage to Baron Cederstrom. It has been restored after being donated to Swansea. The Pavilion stood originally near the arboreum, now a park open to the public. Across the fence at the back of the grounds and on to the bridle road brings you to “Y Greithig” – ” Scarry or Rocky Place”, my grandfather’s house fifty yards form the outflow of Ogof Fynnon Ddu – “Cave of the Black Spring” – now an underground nature reserve with unique fauna and the deepest cave in Britain. Across the valley is the extensive Dan yr Ogof system discovered by the Morgan brothers.
