    House & Family History: Glanbran was built of fine Bath stone, circa 1777, for Roderick Gwynne. Roderick's son Sackville was an important harpist and patron of music; his grandson lived in the fast lane with the Prince Regent's set, ruined the Estate and ended his days as a cab driver in Liverpool. The House was noted for its fine staircase of Spanish chestnut. Glanbran was demolished in 1930; fragments remain.
