History

Garden feature built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, architect and owner of the Brondanw estate. The gardens were laid out to his designs in various stages between his inheritance of the estate in 1908 and his death in 1978. He created here one of Wales' most impressive gardens distinctive for its interlinked terraces, compartments and axial vistas that are aligned on the surrounding mountains of Moel Hebog, Moelwyn, Cnicht and Snowdon.

Exterior

Tall, square rubble piers with moulded sandstone capping and sandstone ball finials. Fine wrought-iron half-gates, with serpentine tops and scrolled decoration. Beyond, facing NW, a flight of 6 semi-circular slate steps. Small, plain vista screen beyond with rendered brick piers, cement-stone finials and simple wrought-iron balustrade.

Reasons for Listing
