OUR HISTORY

A splendid late eighteenth century town house occupying the most prominent plot in the village of Llangadog, formerly known as Llangadock.

By the late nineteenth century a full width shop front had replaced the original ground floor of the principle façade. This three-storey house faces north where it presents the upper part of a sophisticated Georgian façade.

The upper storey has three small round-arched windows. On the grand second storey, the piano nobile, there is one larger round-arched window on the left-hand side below its upper counterpart and on the right is a fine venetian window set centrally below the right and centre upper windows.

MORE ABOUT THE SHOP

A full entablature runs above both elevations with urns at the corners and between the bays. Behind this rise massive chimney stacks and what appears to be a pyramidal slate roof.
The building to the east may have been a service wing.

Formerly known as The Limes, the building was grade II listed in August 1966. (CADW)

The Limes was officially designated as being of special architecture, with historical and cultural significance to which, it still illustrates today. 

The shop was originally a general store, selling fabric, food, seeds and ironmongery.

In the early nineteenth century it became a chemist & Grocer and was owned by E T Rees.

 

Leslie James Bailey purchased the shop from E T Rees in the mid nineteenth century and was trading as a grocery store. It was passed on to both his sons Alan and David and remains trading as L J Bailey and Sons with a proud family culture.
