Golden Grove  Carmarthenshire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Golden Grove like this:

GOLDEN GROVE, a seat of the Earl of Cawdor, in Carmarthen; on the river Teifi, 2½ miles SSW of Llandeilo-fawr. It stands on a terrace, on a hill-side; is a modern edifice, in the Tudor style, with tall central tower; and contains some interesting portraits and pictures. A previous mansion stood on lower ground, amid what are now gardens; was the seat of the Earls of Carberry; and gave refuge to Jeremy Taylor, after the death of Charles I. A station of Golden Grove, on the Carmarthen railway, is near.
