Witley Court , Worcestershire
Witley Court , Worcestershire
This is a Grade 1 listed building and was once one of the great houses of the Midlands, but today it is a spectacular ruin after being devastated by fire in 1937. It was built by Thomas Foley in 1655 on the site of a former manor house near Great Witley. Subsequent additions were designed by John Nash in the early 19th century and the Court was subsequently bought by the Dudley family in 1837. Following the disastrous fire in 1937, the Witley Estate, including its gardens, fell into long decline
