Fawsley Park and remains of the Dower House
Fawsley Park and remains of the Dower House
The Dower house was built for us of widowed heiresses in C16. Fawsley Park was created by the Knightley family in the C15. The family evicted all their tenant peasant farmers to make way for sheep. This ruin and the church are all that remain of the village today. See LinkExternal link for further information.
