Woodlands, Bridgnorth


The parkland associated with this house seems to have lost its woodland over the last 100 years.

Visitor Access, Directions & Contacts


The Woodlands is sited two miles south of the town of Bridgnorth.


In the mid-19th century the Woodlands was the property of T.W. Wylde Browne. The hall is first recorded in 1808, although it is not until 1826-7 that it is located within a defined area of parkland. Evidence for the hall at the end of the 19th century suggests that its grounds extended mainly northwards - probably as kitchen gardens - and westwards.

The hall lies in the south-east of the park, which in 1826-7 occupied an area lying to the east of a large tract of woodland. At that time a lodge beyond the park to the north-east lay on the Deuxhill road. From there a drive curved east-south-east towards the hall.

While in 1851 the park was described as well-timbered, by 1882 very little woodland is apparent, although the park itself had been extended by that date and the boundaries defined in the north-east, east and south-east by the roads. The main drive, possibly on a more southerly route than in 1826-27, ran to the north-west of the Hall. Two further shorter drives also ran from the lodge towards the north-east boundary.
