History

This building replaced a fine Gothic-style mansion which was burnt down before its completion in 1829. The estate has 700 acres of land, most of which belonged to the Countess Listowel, daughter of Admiral Windham. It was a custom for the lady of the manor to allow visitors to look around the grounds (but not the house) for a small fee. Tickets were sold in the town by various businesses of high standing. The encroaching ivy covers some excellent flint work. Classical statues are placed at each end of the building, and stone knights in armour stand in protective pose near the main entrance.
