Neachhill (also known as Neach Hill)6301

Neachley, England, Shropshire

Brief Description

Neachhill is a country house near Tong Castle. In 1858 the two were said to be separated by 'a sheet of water' belonging to Neachhill, although it is now unclear where that was. The main approach to the house was from the south-east, along a half-mile long tree lined drive with a lodge. Next to the house were kitchen gardens and outbuildings surrounded by woods and shrubberies, and parkland lay beyond.

History

Neachhill was first built between 1830 and 1840, and there were gardens and parkland by the 1880s.
