Description:The original Aqualate Hall was built for Edwin Skrymsher in the early seventeenth century. Sir John Boughey bought the house in the late eighteenth century and commissioned John Nash to rebuild it in the Gothic style.

The building was destroyed by fire in 1910. The new house was built between 1927 and 1930 by W.D. Caroe. An original range of gables by Nash joins the new house to an eighteenth century stable block. In the grounds can be found two Gothic lodge-houses, and a red brick house with an attached castellated tower.

Photographer: Harry Osbourne of Woodseaves.
