Other things to note
History
A property is believed to have existed here in C17 though possibly with a Welsh name. This building appears to be an C18 farmhouse extended in early C19 and again in later C19 and also early C20 as a mine-owner's residence. Gelligaer Tithe Map 1842 shows the house with a large barn wing extending at front right, the apportionment giving John Perrott as owner (as named on the nearby stable); the tenancy was let with Pen y daren presumably as a farm. By the time of the first edition OS map 1877, building had taken on nearly its present shape by incorporating the barn range into a new wing to right and adding two new wings to left; Second Edition of 1919 appears to show the W cross wing further extended to rear. Census of 1891 identifies owner James Smith as Colliery Owner. Continued in use as mine manager's house for Powell Dyffryn into mid C20. Although giving the impression of symmetry, the building's interior reveals its differential development by different ceiling heights etc; blocked former farmhouse staircase.

The Perrot family can be traced back to the C16 when Sir John Perrot 1530-1592 of Haroldston Pembs was Lord Deputy of Ireland. The house at Cascade came into the family by the marriage of Gregory Perrot in C17. Son Gregory inherited and became rector of Gelligaer; he was cousin to Edward Lewis who set up the local educational charitable trust. The estate comprised Cascade, Berllanlwyd and Rhos-yr-Wyddfa farms and Hengoed Hall. The John Perrot named on the stable died 1847 and the estate passed to another of that name who died 1876. A mineral lease of 1910 shows the estate to be shared by 17 persons. In later C19 house was leased to a colliery owner J L Smith and in 1915 to the Powell Dyffryn Company, who enlarged it, and subsequently to the National Coal Board, until it reverted to private ownership in late C20.
