Summary: Police report refers to being on duty 'near the bridge' - presumably the river bridge that is on the road to Penparcau. One report refers to a policeman on duty near Pwll Simon and seeing people entering and leaving the wooden house. Another mentions someone charged with camping beside the highway near the wooden house. It may have been demolished earlier, but the only building on the map in 1889 that it could be it seems to be the small one in the top right, near the road.
