Brief description of site

The park and gardens at Bryn-y-neuadd, now a hospital, were laid out by Edward Milner in the mid-19th century. There is a formal Italianate garden and an extensive kitchen garden. Pulham & Son constructed artificial pools and rockwork features in a stream by the former Grand Lodge.

Brief history of site

The 17th-century house was rebuilt in the mid-19th century when the gardens were developed. For the first half of the 20th century the site was owned by a hospital in Northampton. In 1967 Bryn-y-neuadd opened as a hospital for people with learning difficulties with villa-style accommodation in wooded grounds. A resettlement policy aimed to resettle all the residents by 2005-06.
