The West Country region

Situated on the north slope of the Mendip Hills in an area of great historical and geological interest.


At present, the Grade II listed property is contained within about twelve acres of land consisting variously of formal gardens, kitchen gardens, pasture, and woodland. The land rises from the Bath Road to the northern 75° dip-slope of the Mendip Hills' anticline. The local geology here is at the junction of the Mesozoic and Palæozoic periods, specifically the Triassic and Carboniferous eras, where there is a sedimentary discontinuity, in fact omitting the entire Permian period. The buildings themselves are built upon the rich Keuper Marl loam washed down from the dolomitic conglomerate hills above i.e. Dolebury. It is from this roughly-coursed limestone and conglomerate that the house, various barns and outbuildings are constructed. The marked red colour of many of the building blocks (see photo 12) is from the ochre therein. Ochre, calamine and lead were mined in the Mendips, and especially on Dolebury, in the 19th century.

There are many famous caves within easy walking distance and the owner (a spelaeologist) will be glad to give advice.
