Brief description of site
Wynnstay is one of the largest and most important 18th-century landscape parks in Wales. It retains many of its historic features, some of which are attributed to Richard Woods and Capability Brown. A pleasure garden designed by Brown survives as well as part of a rockwork cascade. There are many monuments and built structures in the park and a formal terrace around the house.
Brief history of site
The estate belonged to the powerful Watkins Williams Wynn family from the mid-18th to the mid-20th century. The house became a school in the mid-20th century and is now largely converted into luxury apartments.
