Brynkinalt (also known as Bryn-kinallt)


Brynkinalt has a picturesque landscape park in very fine setting, laid out in the early-19th century on an ancient site. There are gothic features such as a folly, a bridge and shelters. There are also formal and informal pleasure gardens and an unusual tunnel to the kitchen garden. Part of the park is in Shropshire, and listed on the English Heritage Register. Part of the estate is now a country park, and some is in commercial use.

The landscape park of Bryn-Kinallt dates from around 1808, with Gothic features and an unusual tunnel to the kitchen garden.

There is a main approach to the house from the south which is over a mile long, and it crosses the River Ceiriog at Lady's Bridge. A lodged gate marked the southern extremity of the drive (O.S. 6" V.SW 1895).
