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, elegant gate-piers of rough-dressed local stone. Adjoining sections of wall slope up to the piers on both sides and also down to a frontal masonry projection at L. Plain, rivetted iron gates with shaped top; moulded capping with cement-stone urn finials.

The wall returns immediately beyond the R gate-pier and continues for approximately 30m to the NW where it joins the aedicule; plain wooden gate to the SW of this.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as an integral feature of the nationally important gardens laid out at Plas Brondanw by Clough Williams-Ellis.
