History

Mid C19 and probably designed by Robert Lugar for Joseph Bailey on the former Penmyarth Estate. Penmyarth was purchased by Bailey in 1831 as an extension of Glanusk Park on the S side of the river Usk. Glanusk Park had been purchased in 1825, where Lugar designed the house and lodges. Green Drive Lodge is at the W edge of the park, but the drive served both Penmyarth Park and Gliffaes, where landscape gardens were laid out by William West c1845.
