Tredegar Park 3296

Newport, Wales

Brief Description

Parts of a grand 17th-century layout survive at Tredegar Park, although the integrity of the site has been compromised by road development. A late 18th-century landscaping phase included the creation of a sinuous lake and the removal of some formal elements such as 17th-century avenues. The gardens consisted of several compartments, one of which has recently been restored to its 18th-century layout with parterres of inorganic materials and a small mount.
