Brief description of site

Warleigh Manor is an early-19th-century terraced garden, park and ornamental woods.

Brief history of site

Warleigh Manor was built in 1814-15 by John Webb of Staffordshire for Henry Skrine. The grounds were laid out, presumably around 1815, in an interesting juxtaposition of styles. The manor was owned by the Skrine family until the early 1960s. It was sold, and has since been used as a school, under several different ownerships.
