This early-19th-century castellated house in Tudor style by Thomas Whitwell built for Lady Oliver Sparrow stands in 16 hectares of grounds. In 1907 the house was partly destroyed by fire, and a smaller house was built on the same site. This site is now RAF Brampton with numerous military buildings in the grounds.
