History

Dated 1840 and therefore contemporary with the 3rd Lord Newborough's improvements to the pleasure grounds. The date and style is identical to that over the rear service drive to west of the house and the footbridge near the Hermitage.

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.

Exterior

Cast-iron pedestrian bridge over the Afon Llifon. Girders and parapets all latticed and the parapets curve outwards to end in turned balusters.

Reasons for Listing
