Detailed History

Rheola is an early-19th-century villa dating from around 1812. It was designed by John Nash and has a contemporary picturesque setting.

Although part of the park has been built on by a wartime aluminium plant, the majority of the setting, which was kept deliberately simple, survives, Some of Nash's picturesque estate buildings are also extant. The gardens have been enhanced by later 19th-century tree and shrub planting.
