Here is a photo of Aberaman House in happier times. The photo shows the large pavilion erected on the grounds in which a sumptuous banquet was given by Sir George Elliott on the occasion of the opening of St Margaret’s Church. Note the pineapple trees in the background – a much-cultivated fruit in the mansion houses of the period, including the Cynon Valley; and several prizes and nominations were won at leading exhibitions and shows in the country (including the Royal Horticultural Show).
