Insole Court

Insole Court is a Victorian mansion set in ornamental gardens in the ancient cathedral city of Llandaff within Cardiff.

 

The house was built by James Harvey Insole in 1855, originally as a modest double fronted stone residence named 'Ely Court' and it grew in step with the industrial fortunes of the Insole family. In 1874 Insole adopted the gothic revival style in emulation of the leader of local society, Lord Bute, whose architect, William Burges, had begun building his extraordinary clock tower at Cardiff Castle in 1869.
