Dudmaston’s roots run deep. It has been owned by one family for over 875 years and never been offered for sale. While ancient and traditional, this place has been enriched by the contemporary sculpture and painting collections of Sir George and Lady Labouchere, who donated the house to the National Trust. The collections include botanical art and rare modern Spanish paintings.
Ancient woodland and pioneering forestry recall the time when Dudmaston became a national model for enlightened estate management, Terraced lawns descend to the lake and colourful schrubs linbe serpentine paths through the woods and Dingle, creating Picturesque and artful views.

About the author: Bridget Cherry is an architectural historian who for many years worked for the Pevsner Architectural Guides as researcher, author and editor. Having retired to Shropshire she is enjoying exploring the relationship between local patrons and their buildings and monuments in the area of the Marches.
