A New Castle was built on the site of Wenvoe Castle in 1776–77, under the design of architect Robert Adam. The estate was passed from the Birts to the prominent Glamorgan Jenner family in the early 19th century. It is under their ownership that the gasworks would have been built to light the house and estate buildings. Much of the castle building was destroyed by a fire in 1910, only the east pavilion together with the stable block survived.
