St Aldate's Boarding School

Tredegar House
South Wales, NP10 8YW

The boarding school attended by the Bruhl siblings, Max and Claudie, is actually the Grade I listed Tredegar House, situated in Newport, Wales. Located in the 90 acres of Tredegar Park, the mansion was completed in its current form in 1672, though the earliest surviving part of the building dates back to the 1500's, when it formed a smaller manor house. In its original form the building was constructed from stone, but the rebuild saw the importing of red brick, a rare material in the area in the 17th Century, and indicative of the wealth of the landowners, the powerful and renowned Morgan family.

Tredegar House has appeared on television in the cult horror drama 'Being Human', as well as numerous uses in Doctor Who since that series' return in 2005.
