Hanes a Diwylliant Lleol

Mae tystiolaeth o anheddiad dynol yn ardal Machynlleth yn dyddio mor bell yn ôl â'r Oes Efydd Gynnar (tua 2750 o flynyddoedd yn ôl) gyda thystiolaeth o weithgarwch mwyngloddio copr o fewn milltir i ganol y dref. Efallai fod chwedl ‘Cantre’r Gwaelod’, y ddinas odidog a’r gwastadeddau ffrwythlon sydd bellach ar goll o dan y tonnau ger Aberdyfi yn sôn am y cyfnod hwn, neu am ymsefydlwyr ymhellach yn ôl yn niwloedd amser – o bosibl mor bell yn ôl â’r diwedd. o'r oes iâ pan fydd cynnydd sylweddol yn lefel y môr yn ail-lunio arfordir Prydain. Adeiladodd y Rhufeiniaid gaer fechan ym Mhennal, rhyw bedair milltir i'r gorllewin o Fachynlleth, ac mae tystiolaeth archeolegol yn awgrymu bod aneddiadau Rhufeinig cymedrol yn yr ardal o amgylch y gaer hon.


Un o'r cyfeiriadau ysgrifenedig cynharaf at Fachynlleth yw Siarter Frenhinol 1291, a roddwyd gan Edward I i Owen de la Pole Arglwydd Powys. Caniataodd y Siarter hon i Fachynlleth gynnal marchnad bob dydd Mercher a dwy ffair y flwyddyn, traddodiad sy’n parhau hyd heddiw. Mae’n amlwg bod y farchnad a’r ffeiriau wedi helpu Machynlleth i ffynnu drwy gydol y cyfnod Canoloesol a hyd at Oes Fictoria gyda thystiolaeth i awgrymu bod anifeiliaid yn dod ar werth o bob rhan o Gymru ac mor bell i ffwrdd â Henffordd a Swydd Amwythig.


Mae gan y dref hanesyddol hon nifer o adeiladau diddorol yn ogystal ag adeilad Senedd Owain Glyndwr. Mae'r Royal House sy'n sefyll ar y brif ffordd drwodd yn enghraifft wych o dy canoloesol. Credir bod twyllwr o'r enw Dafydd Gam wedi ei garcharu yn y Royal House rhwng 1404 a 1412 am geisio llofruddio Owain Glyndwr. Yn dilyn ei ryddhau, mae hanesion hanesyddol yn dangos i Dafydd fynd ymlaen i ymladd ochr yn ochr â Harri V ym Mrwydr Agincourt ac, yn wir, caiff ei enwi ymhlith y meirw yn Henry V gan Shakespeare.


Traddodiad arall sy'n gysylltiedig â'r Royal House yw i Siarl I aros yno yn 1643 - ac felly yr enw 'Royal House'. Ar 29 Tachwedd 1644, ger Pont Dyfi, bu brwydr rhwng byddin Oliver Cromwell o dan orchymyn Syr Thomas Myddleton o Gastell y Waun a'r Brenhinwyr. Lladdwyd llawer a llosgwyd nifer o dai ym Machynlleth oedd yn cael eu meddiannu gan Frenhinwyr.


Yn y 19eg ganrif, priododd merch tirfeddiannwr lleol amlwg â'r Is-iarll Seaham, ail fab trydydd Marcwis Londonderry a gwnaethant eu cartref ym Mhlas Machynlleth. Ar farwolaeth ei dad, daeth Is-iarll Seaham yn Iarll Vane. Codwyd y twr cloc mawreddog sy’n sefyll yng nghanol Machynlleth ar safle hen Neuadd y Dref gan drigolion y dref i ddathlu dyfodiad oed Charles Stewart Vane-Tempest, Is-iarll Castlereagh, mab hynaf Iarll Vane a’i wraig. Gosodwyd y garreg sylfaen ar 15 Gorffennaf 1874. Un arall o’u meibion, yr Arglwydd Herbert Vane-Tempest oedd yr aelod olaf o’r teulu i fyw yn y Plas. Cafodd ei ladd mewn gwrthdrawiad trên Aber-miwl ar Reilffyrdd y Cambrian, ac ar ôl ei farwolaeth, defnyddiwyd Plas Machynlleth yn gyntaf fel cyfleuster milwrol yn ystod yr Ail Ryfel Byd ac yna ei roi i drigolion y dref.


Er gwaethaf hanes gwleidyddol cyfoethog Machynlleth ac isddiwylliant ecolegol ac amgen cyfoes, mae hefyd wedi chwarae rhan bwysig yn hanes roc a rôl. Mae Robert Plant o Led Zeppelin wedi bod yn berchen ar eiddo yma ers yn fachgen ac ysgrifennodd yr eiconig 'Stairway to Heaven' yn ogystal â llawer mwy o ganeuon ym mwthyn Bron-Yr-Aur ychydig y tu allan i Fachynlleth.


 

Local History and Culture 

 

There is evidence of human settlement in the Machynlleth area dating as far back as the Early Bronze Age (c. 2750 years ago) with evidence of copper mining activity within a mile of the town centre. It may be that the legend of 'Cantre'r Gwaelod', the magnificent city and fertile plains now lost beneath the waves near Aberdyfi speaks of this period, or of settlers further back in the mists of time - possibly as far back as the end of the ice age when significant sea-level rises re-shaped the coast of Britain. The Romans built a small fort at Pennal, some four miles west of Machynlleth, and archaeological evidence suggests there was modest Roman settlement in the area around this fort.

One of the earliest written references to Machynlleth is the Royal Charter of 1291, granted by Edward I to Owen de la Pole the Lord of Powys. This Charter allowed Machynlleth to hold a market every Wednesday and two fairs a year, a tradition that continues to this day. It is clear that the market and fairs helped Machynlleth to thrive throughout the Medieval period and right through to the Victorian era with evidence to suggest that animals came for sale from across the length and breadth of Wales and as far afield as Hereford and Shropshire.

This historic town boasts a number of interesting buildings in addition to Owain Glyndwr's Parliament building. Royal House which stands on the main through road is a great example of a medieval house. It is believed that a rogue by the name of Dafydd Gam was imprisoned at Royal House between 1404 and 1412 for attempting to assassinate Owain Glyndwr. Following his release, historic annals show that Dafydd went on to fight alongside Henry V at the Battle of Agincourt and, indeed, he is named amongst the dead in Shakespeare's Henry V.

Another tradition associated with Royal House is that Charles I stayed there in 1643 - and hence the name 'Royal House'. On 29 November 1644, near Dyfi Bridge, a battle took place between Oliver Cromwell's army under the command of Sir Thomas Myddleton of Chirk Castle and the Royalists. Many were killed and a number of houses in Machynlleth that were occupied by Royalists were burned down.

In the 19th century, the daughter of a prominent local landowner married Viscount Seaham, the second son of the third Marquess of Londonderry and they made their home in Plas Machynlleth. On the death of his father, Viscount Seaham became Earl Vane. The grand clock tower which stands in the centre of Machynlleth on the site of the old Town Hall was erected by the townspeople to celebrate the coming of age of Charles Stewart Vane-Tempest, Viscount Castlereagh, the eldest son of Earl Vane and his wife. The foundation stone was laid on 15 July 1874. Another of their sons, Lord Herbert Vane-Tempest was the last member of the family to live at the Plas. He was killed in the Abermule train collision on the Cambrian Railways, and after his death, Plas Machynlleth was firstly used as a military facility during the Second World War then given to the townspeople.

Despite Machynlleth's rich political history and contemporary ecological and alternative subculture, it has also played an important role in the history of rock and roll. Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant has owned property here since he was a boy and penned the iconic 'Stairway to Heaven' as well as many more songs in Bron-Yr-Aur cottage just outside Machynlleth.
