Woodhill House

  • Built / Designed For: Samuel Charles Carne

    House & Family History: Woodhill House was supposedly built by Samuel Charles Carne as an officers' mess during the Napoleonic Wars. Two Samuel Carpenter-designed statues today on the lawn at Woodhill came from Moulsham Hall, where they may have once decorated the parapet and pediment of the now-demolished Essex house (see "Images" section).
