Site Description Gwrych Castle was created by Lloyd Bamford Hesketh in association with Thomas Rickman from 1816. The boundary wall, with its various lodges and gates probably followed the main building's completion in c1822, although works continued until c1850. Betws Lodge forms the dramatic entrance to woodland outside the park, which was probably a hunting and shooting reserve.
