Courting Controversy

Grade I listed former court house reduced in price by 20% after owner is targeted by anti-English militants

 

Anglophobia is well known to be rife in certain parts of Wales and such organisations as Meibion Glyndŵr (Sons of Owain Glyndŵr), Mudiad Amddiffyn Cymru (Welsh Defence Movement) and the Free Wales Army targeted English residents and English owned businesses from the 1960s to the 1990s.

 

In spite of provocation from English people such as A. A. Gill – who in 1997 commented that the Welsh were “loquacious, dissemblers, immoral liars, stunted, bigoted, dark, ugly, pugnacious little trolls” –and Rod Liddle – who described the Welsh as “miserable, seaweed munching, sheep-bothering pinch-faced hill-tribes” in 2010 – peace has generally reigned in the time since but in Caernarfon in Gwynedd, an English property developer named Aaron Hill experienced exactly the contrary after buying a Grade I listed former court house.

 

In September 2014, 49-year old Mr Hill told Wales Online that vandals had smashed his windows 46 times, daubed graffiti across doors, attacked his car and urinated through his letterbox. He told the paper he had reported about 26 incidents to North Wales Police and remarked: “They said: ‘You need to f**k off where you belong. We don’t want you here. We’ll burn the place down’”.

Plainly having had enough, Mr Hill placed The Old Court House on the market for £650,000 ($814,000, €768,000 or درهم3 million) in September 2016. It has not sold and was reduced to £525,000 ($657,000, €620,000 or درهم2.4 million) earlier this month.

 

Offered by Beresford Adams, the property dates to 1296 and has partly restored by Mr Hill. It features 8 bedrooms, vast reception rooms and even comes with former prison guard and interview rooms. Somewhat strangely decorated also, the selling agents remark: “Due to this property’s location and size it would be ideal as a small boutique hotel or to be sub-divided into two or more dwellings”.

  1. This is not typical of how Welsh people behave. This man must have done something else to provoke the locals. Something does not add up.

    • There used to be a by law in Chester, only repealed in Victorian times but which should be re-introduced.
      If a Welshie was seen on the steets of Chester after curfew you could kill him.

    • My father used to employ a Welsh gardener from the local open prison.
      When my father asked, “Taffy. what are you inside for”. Taffy replied, “well, sir, I have been dishonest”. To which my father, a man with no understanding of political correctitude replied, “but I thought all you Welsh were dishonest?”

  2. He has to be crackers!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why would anyone want to live in that dreadful house????????????? Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!! And lock up the b*****s harassing him!!!!!!!!!!!! Dirty c*****s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Such a bizarre thing to have a Grade 1 listed building in the High Street with a double yellow line right next to it. Part of life’s rich tapestry. I do not believe for an instant that the police spoke like that to Mr Hill.

  4. This is exactly how the welsh behave.
    I am born Welsh. But had to leave this town as well. Due to xenophobic, anglophobic,anti social behaviour.
    I believe it stems from the poverty that is inevitably connected with the Welsh language . The anglophobic Welsh peasants inability to rise the class ladder. As they would of done previously. In previous centuries.
