Whitbourne Court

  • Earlier Houses: The current house sits on a medieval moated site that was originally a stone palace of the bishops of Hereford.

    House & Family History: The brick Whitbourne Court adjoins the church and is primarily of the 18th and 19th centuries, but there are medieval and 16th century parts. The northwest side of the moat has been filled, but much of the rest, its island and a small pond to the southeast, are extant.
