A park enclosure wall built by Sir John Hay Williams in the period 1830-1842, contemporary with the castellated style refashioning of the Castle.

The N side of the rectangle and the present main gateway at the N of the W side were rebuilt in consequence of the construction of the A55 through the north edge of the park.


The wall is about 2m in height, of local axe-dressed limestone, with a large comb-coping of rough stones projecting on each side. The west-facing wall is in masonry brought to courses. The N side has been rebuilt following the line of the present A55 road.

The present main entrance from Engine Hill is not original, but an original entrance on the axis of the Hotel yard survives on the W side. Glascoed Lodge is integral with the wall. Other openings have square wall-piers with pyramid copings. Four-centred doorway arches at Bryn Celyn Lodge and Lodge Bach. The wall has been breached at Bryn Celyn, Lodge Bach, Cross Foxes and Gloddfa, but is otherwise remarkably complete. Mine Cottages at the W side are later, built into the wall: a pair of stone cottages in coursed limestone masonry, with slate roof, end chimneys, dormer windows of 6-panes with horned sashes, door and window joinery below restored.
