Seen across Low Street from the Churchyard in this estate village.

Londesborough estate was bought by Lord Albert Denison in 1850. Before this, the estate had passed down through the Clifford and Boyle families. In the 17th century, Richard Boyle employed the architect Robert Hooke to build a 'Wren-style country house'. He also built new stables and gardens and made improvements to the village, including a hospital for 12 poor people of the parish this still exists (SE8645 : Burlington Row, Londesborough). His great-grandson (also Richard) rebuilt Londesborough in the 1730s.

The estates became neglected in the late 18th century after they came into the possession of the dukes of Devonshire. The sixth duke of Devonshire demolished the house in 1818, and built a new one in 1839. He sold this, along with the estate, in 1845 to railway entrepreneur George Hudson. Following Hudson's disgrace the estate remained in the Denison family until 1923. Since 1935 it has been owned by the Ashwin family.
