History

Detailed History

The buildings of Sion Hill Place were begun in 1818 and finished in 1820. The architect was John Pinch. Summerhill House, attached to the west end, came from Chippenham, and may have been designed by John Wood the elder.

The communal garden to the south of Sion Hill Place was presumably laid out after 1818-1820.
