The Manor House, Celtic Manor Resort
The original manor on the site, dating from the early 1860s and originally known as Coldra Manor. It was owned by the Powell family (of Powell-Duffryn fame) until sold in 1915 to Sir John Beynon, a local coal and shipping entrepreneur. In the 1930s he gave the house to the local health authority, who converted it to a maternity hospital, which opened in 1940 as the Lydia Beynon Maternity Hospital in honour of Sir John's mother.

The hospital closed in 1975, and after aborted plans to turn it into a mental hospital, it was converted to a hotel, opening in 1982. This was the start of the entire Celtic Manor Resort development.

In the top left of the photo can be seen a small part of the Resort Hotel, now the much more significant and well known hotel on the site.
