Brief description of site

The Elizabethan house was built by the Chetwynd family, and inherited in the mid-18th century by the Earls Talbot. The Victorian terrace is still good though simplified. There is an ornamental walk from the house to the orangery. The site is now the Sandwells Residential Arts Centre, and is also used for weddings, conferences and functions.

Brief history of site

The house was built in 1613, and substantially re-built after a fire in 1882.
