History

Stouts Hill was originally acquired in 1697 by Thomas Gyde, a local clothier. In 1743 the estate was inherited by his son Timothy Gyde, who then built the house which was a very early example of Rococo-Gothic style. The architect was unrecorded but it is believed to be the work of William Halfpenny of Bristol. In the mid-1780s it became the property of the Lloyd-Baker family who owned it until the mid-20th century, when it was sold and became a school until the 1980s.
