The Round House. The image shows Gordon Howe, Robin Kirby and Robert Griffiths at the gate entrance where copper slag triangular coping stones, made more than likely in Penclawdd, and have the original house name painted on it. Named so after the round Toll House that once stood at this point at the end of Vennaway Lane. Pennard . The round Toll House was removed after the Rebecca Riots in about 1840 and a traditional Victorian House built in its place. This in turn was demolished to build this modern take on a round house by Robert and his wife Victoria designed by local architect Huw Griffiths. Rob says that he thought they would never complete the project as it has gone on for so long but now it is almost completed. The Gower Society judging team chose this building because of the quality of the construction and the circular detailing to reflect the past history stretching back to the Rebecca Riots.
