Inspiration

Modern day Brogyntyn is a truly ancient estate dating back to Castell Brogyntyn, a native Welsh castle found close to Oswestry, Shropshire on the Anglo-Welsh border. It is thought the castle was built, or at least owned, by Owain Brogyntyn, a 12th Century prince of the Kingdom of Powys and the natural son of Prince Madog ab Meredydd.

Brogyntyn Hall or Porkington Hall was the home of the Ormsby-Gore family (Baron Harlech) from 1815 and had previously been the estate of their ancestors the Maurices and Owens since the sixteenth century. It was abandoned and uninhabited from around 1985.

Library - It is known that Sir Robert Owen of Brogyntyn (d. 1698) was a bibliophile who continued the family's traditional patronage of poets and a collection of printed English literature was developed by his grandfather Lewis Anwyl of Park. Nevertheless, the early history of the library at Brogyntyn is obscure. Some of the family had collected early printed books during the nineteenth century but this does not account for the fine collection of manuscripts that the library held. There is some evidence contained within the manuscripts that suggests that the collection was formed circa 1700 from other manuscripts collections in the surrounding area. The thirty Welsh language manuscripts that the third Lord Harlech deposited in the National Library of Wales in 1934 was, at the time, the largest collection of manuscripts in Welsh that was still privately owned. The fourth Lord Harlech deposited a further fifty-nine manuscripts in the National Library in 1938 and subsequently donated most of the deposits in 1945. The remaining items were purchased from the sith Lord Harlech, the incumbent in 1993.

The manuscripts from the Brogyntyn Library include a medieval psalter and a version of Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniæ, both from the thirteenth century, a fifteenth-century miscellany in Middle English, a volume of the Welsh laws of Hywel Dda, and pedigrees, genealogy, and heraldry of families in Wales.

Safety

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Burn candles out of reach of children and pets. Always leave about 10cm between burning candles. Do not burn candles on or near anything that may catch fire. Only burn this candle on a level, heat-resistant surface. 

Never burn this candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not allow the flame to touch the glass. On the first burn, always burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool. Ensure the wick is upright, above the wax, and central before the wax sets. Always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting to avoid smoking and damage to the glass. Glass may become hot during use. Extinguish when 5mm of wax remains and do not relight.
