Downing 1121

Holywell, Wales

Brief Description

The grounds at Downing were laid out in Picturesque style in the late-18th century by Thomas Pennant, the naturalist and antiquary. He created extensive walks along sheltered valleys and dingles on the estate, incorporating follies and ruins (most of which are no longer in place). Additions by his son David in the early-19th century included an important collection of trees.
