Tewkesbury, England, Worcestershire, Malvern Hills

Brief Description

Pull Court is a house remodelled in the early 19th century by Edward Blore, set in a landscape park partly laid over an ancient deer park. Lancelot Brown may have been involved in the design, but there is no documentary evidence for this. The M50 now divides the park.


The present house was built from 1839 to 1846, designed by Edward Blore. It replaced a much older house. The layout of the park is older than the existing house.
