The Quinta. Chirk. (Mrs Barnes.) Volume 4 Stanley Leighton Sketches
Mr. Thomas Barnes, M.P. for Bolton in 1865. purchased this place about 1850 from Mr. F. R. West of Ruthin Castle, and erected a new house here in the modern Gothic style, in the place of a Villa, called the ‘Quinta’ built by its former owner, whose mother was a coheir of Richard Myddleton of Chirk Castle.
The grounds are prettily laid out.
