Hi Kayzee,yes please  :)
I did go to try to find the place after visiting a relative in Cradoc, but I think I went up the wrong lane and got lost!

kind regards

Hi Margaret,
                   Have spoken to the owners, there is nothing left of the house, but part of the barn & cowsheds are still standing. I shall go for a walk on the weekend to see what is there & will send you a personal mail with exact directions etc and/or a photo.

Hi Cardi,
             Welcome to rootschat - not often Blaengwy gets a mention on here, but a great place to get help with any family history problems. Good luck with your research.

Dear all
it is a long time since this discussion was completed, but I wanted to tell you the Cynefin project http://cynefin.archiveswales.org.uk/en/ tht is transcribing tithe maps of Wales.
I have been able to look in detail at the 1850 tithe map of the parish of Merthyr Cynog which includes the names of all houses and additionally lists the landowner, occupant, name and description of the land by linking it to the field number.
http://cynefin.archiveswales.org.uk/en/tithe-maps/transcribe/#Merthyr%20Cynog&/transcribe/477891144931/&/georeference/452847425302/&/visualize/452847425302/&&/map/462892965487/
If you haven't already looked, and are interested in the maps of this era, you wont be disappointed.
To pay back, I have joined the army of transcribers, and have mapped one page and one map !
