History

Possibly built in 1830's when the house and boundary wall, and in particular the East Lodge, were being built by 3rd Lord Newborough. The East Drive was one of several drives that ran through the park from the various lodges and entrances. The East Drive appears to have been short-lived or may have just been used as a ride and not for regular traffic.

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

Simple stone bridge carrying the level driveway from one side of the Afon Llifon to the other. Flat arch and low stone parapets stepped up at ends.
