Penllergare, formal gardens 4013

Swansea, Wales

Brief Description

Very little of the formal garden area of Penllergare remains intact.

Visitor Facilities

The site has some areas of public access.

Detailed Description

Little of the structure and nothing of the plantings of the observatory and flower gardens adjacent to the mansion are now visible. It is possible that excavation might reveal more, particularly the course of gravelled paths. Otherwise only remnants of ornamental fencing, a gate and steps, some rhododendrons and a black mulberry in very poor condition hint at the previous usage.
