General Picton's last battle


Almost 200 years after his death at Waterloo, one of the Duke of Wellington's top commanders, General Sir Thomas Picton, is again linked with a major battle.

This time it is a campaign not against Napoleon Bonaparte, but to save his once grand country mansion in Carmarthenshire, Wales.

The red-brick Georgian house, called Iscoed, is located in the parish of St Ishmaels at Ferryside near Carmarthen.

Iscoed has been allowed to fall into terrible ruin, but a group of concerned people is battling to fund a project to restore the historically significant and lovely building, as well as turning it into a Arts-centred attraction.

As you can see from the images, Iscoed is little more than a shell at the moment although it is sited on a particularly beautiful spot on the Towey River.

The plan is to have the project completed by the 200th anniversary of Waterloo in 1815.
