Detailed History

The house was remodelled from an older house in 1827-1829 to the design of George Phillips Manners of Bath for F.R.B.S. Penoyre.

The park appears to have been laid out at the same time, including two lodges, three obelisks, a fishpond, a water tower and a kitchen garden.

The house was demolished in 1952. The park has lost most of its trees, but some features remain, including the kitchen garden.
