Fillingham Castle :: Shared Description

A Grade I Listed country house of between 1760 and 1770 possibly by John Carr of York, for Sir Cecil Wray. Late 18th or early 19th century the Cecil's extended to the north and added a raised terrace all around it, thus converting the original ground floor into an extensive cellar. By 1900 the house, although in the ownership of Seymour Berkeley Portman-Dalton, was empty. During the first half of the C20 the property was mostly left to decline. It was purchased by the Rose family in 1949 who undertook a major restoration project on the house, which was reduced in size. The Stable Block and Haybarn now described as in Castle Farm are Grade II Listed as is the parkland surrounding the house along with the east gate including the 1.2km east avenue partly lined with mature oaks, sycamore and horse chestnut.
