Classical female statues
Four standing classical female statues.
The façade of the late 17th century Banqueting House is nearly all that remains of the original house built at Margam. The wall was reconstructed in Thomas Mansel Talbot's pleasure grounds early in the nineteenth century. John Newman suggests that the classical females do not seem to personify the seasons and that they look of the 19th century.
