Shavington Hall

  • Built / Designed For: 6th Viscount Kilmorey

    House & Family History: Shavington was an enormous house, with a 17-bay Garden Façade.

    House Replaced By: In the early 21st century the Stables were converted into a modern house, which is the seat of the Heywood-Lonsdale family.

    Comments: Peter Reid, writing in "Burke's and Savills Guide to Country Houses, Volume II: Herefordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire," says that when Shavington was demolished in 1959, Shropshire "lost the grandest house of its date in the county."
