Probably contemporay with the Hermitage which is known to have been built c1825 by the 2nd Lord Newborough.
Glynllifon was the seat of the Wynn family and Sir Thomas John Wynn became the 1st Lord Newborough in 1776. The house was rebuilt after a fire 1836-48 by Edward Haycock, architect of Shrewsbury. Influence for some of the garden features came from the family’s grand tours.
Simple single-arch rustic rubble footbridge with unlaid path to ramped deck. Closed at time of inspection.
Included for group value with the Hermitage and other listed footbridges within these especially well-preserved pleasure grounds.
