Brief history of site

Warmley House was built in about 1750 for William Champion, a Quaker industrialist who had moved his brassworks to Warmley. The gardens around the House were laid out from 1746 to 1769. Many features had a dual purpose, being both ornamental and of use in the industrial processes.
