The size and shape being determined, the greatest consideration was given by the Committee to every detail; they made thirteen elaborate reports, and met at least twenty-seven times. John Powell, Clerk of the Peace, £2,000; and apparently in 1842 a further £2,000; and perhaps at Epiphany 1843 another £1.300; Miss Latham added £800; making in all £8,900.
A builder's tender was accepted for £6,248, and at the Midsummer Sessions it was agreed to raise a loan of £8,000. The contractor delivered his bill for extras beyond his contract for £2,576, and the Architect's charges came to £508, and so another £1,400 was raised.
The Exchequer Office had not funds at their disposal, and the Equitable Assurance Co., to whom application was made for a loan on the security of the County Hate, replied that " the office does not lend money on such security." It was therefore determined to raise the money within the county, in sums of £1,000 bearing interest at £5 per cent, per annum, and repayable as it would seem generally by ten equal annual instalments. The work was practically completed before the year 1843 was out, thereby showing that buildings could be executed with rapidity when their worships were so minded. In a succeeding chapter we shall give a description of the roads of the county up to the middle of the 18th century, and describe the efforts put forward by the Breconshire Agricultural Society for their improvement.
The total cost of the Hall cannot readily be established from these Records, but Mr. The 1707 Act of Parliament, passed to widen and repair the principal roads in the county, set up the system of tolls, and gates and toll-houses were erected, and £10,000 borrowed on the security of the tolls for road improvements.
The question seems to have remained in abeyance for some time, as in 1849 it was still under discussion whether the trial should take place at Hereford or at Carmarthen. The same year a letter was received from the Secretary of State requesting the opinion of the Justices as to the propriety of establishing a general constabulary force. 437] had been passed for the better regulation of divisions in counties.
At this point the volume ends, and leaves us in doubt as to how the dispute was concluded. In the year 1839 Hugh Bold, Esq., retired from the office of Chairman of Quarter Sessions through failing health, and the Lord Lieutenant was "respectfully requested" to continue to act as chairman. The Court thought that for this county it was not necessary. Under its provisions the Justices in 1839 formed a new petty sessional division consisting of Ystradgunlais and Ystradvellty ; these parishes were therefore " disannexed " from Devynock, and were henceforth to form the district of Ystradgunlais, that being the name of the principal parish within the division.
There is also the county rate basis as settled in 1851, the rateable value being then £171,132 ; a list of the Rolls in the press in the Grand Jury Room ; a list of Friendly Societies with the dates of their rules ; a list of parishes and places within the county of Brecknock ; and the Rules and Regulations for the government of the gaol. In consequence of the gaol being unhealthy, and inadequate for the safe custody of prisoners, escape having been effected in one instance and other attempts having been made, it was in 1838 deemed expedient to erect a new gaol.
A committee was formed to whom also was referred the erection of a new County Hall on a site contiguous to the gaol ; difficulties, however, arose, and the Shire Hall was built elsewhere.

Millbrook, and Llangrwyne, were repaired at the county's expense. In 1848 the question fin- contracting lor the repairs of parapets and bridges approaches were considered. For instance, in 1838, Tringarth is rebuilt at a cost of £135 ; the Honddu bridge at Watergate cost £214, merely to repair. The River Grwyne had been in flood, and as doubts as to liability to repair have from time to time arisen, it may be well to note that in 1839 the three bridges, Llangenny.
