Witley Court

Witley Court, Worcestershire, England. Another historic property I used to manage.

Witley Court is a vast and rambling remains of a palatial 19th century mansion, surrounded by magnificent landscaped gardens & containing huge stone fountains, the largest fountain, representing Perseus and Andromeda – now restored (a project I managed) – was described as making the ‘noise of an express train’ when fired.

Following the disastrous fire in 1937, the Witley Estate, including its gardens, fell into long decline. It is open to the public and managed by English Heritage
