Sygun Terrace / Tai Sygun is a single terrace of ten quarry workers’ cottages built c.1860 by Ormsby-Gore of Brogyntyn estate.  

All ten cottages are Grade II listed buildings.

Each unit is set behind its own low rubble-walled and railed forecourt garden. Of rubble construction with modern slate roofs and simple end chimneys with cornice bands. Nos 1 and 2 are stepped-up from the remainder and are continuously roofed; nos 3 to 10 are also under a shared roof. Of the latter, nos 3, 4 and 5 are rendered and whitened and those, together with nos 6, 8, 9 and 10, have single-storey modern gabled porches. All doors are modern, mostly part-glazed. The windows are all modern: those to nos 1, 2, 3, 7, 9 and 10 have copies of the original 16-pane unhorned sashes; those to nos 4, 5, 6 and 8 have plain sash approximations. There are modern extensions to the rear of all the cottages.  

Listed for its special interest as a large, mid C19 terrace of quarrymen’s cottages mostly retaining good vernacular character and in a prominent riverside setting within this well-preserved village centre.
