Heritage Open Day at Melbury House (1)
A rare opportunity to visit Melbury House the C16 ancestral home of the Strangeways family was afforded this year by a Heritage Open Day event sponsored by English Heritage. Built for Sir Giles Strangeways in c1530, the house evolved over the centuries commencing in c1692 with rebuilding and remodelling that continued into the C19. The house with its estate including an extensive deer park, forms the lost parish of Melbury Sampford, whose former parish church is southeast of the house on slightly lower ground. Now the Chapel of St Mary, it houses the tombs of the former Lords of the Manor, the Brounings, and the Strangeways. The house is Grade I listed.
