Croome Court
The National Trust took over the landscape park around Croome Court in 1997 and since then have undertaken a major restoration project to recreate Capability Brown's park. Each June the fields to the north of the court are a sea of Moon Daisies. Croome Court was built in the 1750s for the 6th Earl of Coventry, replacing an earlier house and demolishing a church which stood somewhere between the present court and Croome River to the west. The Coventry family sold Croome Court in the 1940s, for many years until the late 1970s it was a school. The house was in private ownership, however, in December 2007, it was purchased by the Croome Heritage Trust. The National Trust have leased the property on 999 year lease and opened the house to the public in September 2009.
