Tyntesfield

The Gothic Revival mansion at Tyntesfield was built by the guano magnate William Gibbs starting in 1863. Gibbs was one of the richest men in England at the time.

William's grandson George was later named Baron Wraxall in 1928. What was known as Tyntesfield Estate has been greatly reduced in size and is now owned by the National Trust.

Tyntesfield

Tyntesfield is now being restored and the restoration work can be viewed by visitors. The fact that Tyntesfield is open during the restoration is unusual.

Tyntesfield

Tyntesfield is only 7 miles southwest of Bristol on the B3128.
