Coryton House

Introduction

There are surviving formal and informal gardens associated with an important townhouse, built for prominent Cardiff citizen John Cory. Formal terraced gardens adjoin the house, and below it an informal area includes cascades and pools and exotic plantings of conifers and bamboos. Parts of the site south-east of the house were developed for offices, and now are being demolished for residential development.
