Brief history of site
By the early-19th century, the land had passed into the ownership of James Fussell, who appears to have lived in a house adjacent to his iron works until around 1825, when he completed the construction of a villa on high ground above the valley. The villa was built to the design of a Bath architect, John Pinch. A Picturesque landscape was laid out around the villa. The grounds appear to have been completed by 1830.
