This view of Tregwynt mansion shows its exposed position on the coast above Abermawr. There was a long-standing legend about buried treasure in the grounds here. In 1996 the lawn outside the ballroom, with its five tall windows seen here, was lifted to create a tennis court. Local metal detectorist, Roy Lewis, asked permission to investigate before the work proceeded. He discovered Wales' largest hoard of coins, 33 gold and 467 silver, covering a whole range of denominations, and including coins bearing the heads of every monarch from Edward VI (1547-53) right through to Charles I (1649). It is thought they were buried by the resident family during the Civil War of 1648. The hoard is on permanent display at the Museum of Wales in Cardiff.
