Throwley Old Hall 7044

Ashbourne, England, Staffordshire, Staffordshire Moorlands

Brief Description

The site has the ruins of a stone-built 16th-century house, with the original garden terraces surviving. It is now part of a working farm and cut in two by a new road. The terraced gardens look down to the valley where there were once two or three ponds and a 15th-century deer park.

History

The manor house was built for Simon Meverell in 1603, probably replacing an earlier building.
