Probably built in 1855 by W G & E Habershon for J H Insole, the local colliery and shipping owner. Likely to be contemporary with the first build of the house.
Constructed of squared, coursed rock-faced Radyr sandstone with Bath limestone ashlar dressings. Two square piers with machicolated cornice and stepped caps, one with the family crest of griffin with shield, this is missing from the other. Curving walls on either side of the drive capped with ashlar coping form a bridge carrying the drive over a small ravine.
Included for group value as part of the garden and estate buildings of a significant Victorian mansion with a chequered history.
