Basford Hall 6993

Brief Description

The site is best-known for the bath house in the grounds. It originally contained a living room and kitchen, a swimming pool, a waterwheel and underground passages.


The Sneyd family acquired the estate around 1815, and it was the Reverend John Sneyd who built the bath house. The house was tenanted for some time, then was in use as a school before returning to the occupancy of a Sneyd family descendant.
