Derry Ormond 1080

Ceredigion, Wales

Brief Description

The essential features of the picturesque landscaping in the park were designed by C.R. Cockerell. This includes three lakes, associated cascades and a magnificent bridge. Cockerell manipulated the water so as to maximise the picturesque views within the park and from the house. Derry Ormond Tower is a prominent eyecatcher built to be seen from the house.

History

The house dated to 1824-7. It was a substantial Classical mansion with a conservatory, and was designed by C.R. Cockerell. The house was demolished in 1953. The structure and some of the planting of a grand and extensive terraced garden survives. The terraces were extended and redesigned by William Goldring 1905.
