Earl's Croome Court
Earl's Croome Court viewed from the footpath to the north-west of the house. For many years this manor house was owned by the Earls of Coventry, their seat being nearby Croome Court until the 10th Earl was killed in World War II in France. This house was the home of the 11th Earl of Coventry until his death in 2002. Since then after being in the Coventry estate for centuries it was sold. The building is Grade II listed.
