The History

You’d be excused for thinking this is a Jacobean manor house, with its mullioned windows and warm honey stone. In fact, it’s a Victorian homage by the famous architect, Henry Clutton, built in 1875 for Joseph Shuttleworth, Richard’s grandfather. The clocktower, however, is a definite Victorian giveaway!
