NOTES: The castle possibly began in 1735, when the owner William Talbot M.P. later second Baron Talbot of Hensol added the east and west wings in a very early Gothic Revival style. The south front seen here was remodelled between 1790-1815 by the second owner Samuel Richardson. In the 1840s, the castle was remodelled again by T. H. Wyatt and David Brandson for Rowland Fothergill who acquired the castle in 1838.
