Dumbleton Hall
Dumbleton Hall
Dumbleton Hall viewed from near Dumbleton church to the east of the hall. The building was begun in 1830 for Edward Holland and was designed by George Stanley Repton. The hall replaced the original Dumbleton Hall which can be traced back to around 1534 and was the home of the Cocks family for over 200 years. In the late 18th century after the death of Sir Richard Cocks the hall fell into disrepair and was eventually demolished. During the 1930's the hall was a popular venue for house parties with regular guests including John Betjeman, later Poet Laureate, and the Mitford sisters. Today the hall is a hotel and its website suggests 'that Hitler 'reserved' the Hall as a private residence upon his victory in Europe'. For the hotel website see: LinkExternal link
