The Story So Far
For over ten years we have organised a Summer Stroll from Packwood House near by, and raised funds in the main for Diabetes UK and other local causes.
Baddesley Clinton National Trust House
This atmospheric house dates from the 15th century and was the home of the Ferrers family for 500 years. The house and interiors reflect its heyday in the Elizabethan era, when it was a haven for persecuted Catholics and there are three priest’s holes. There is a delightful garden with stewponds and a romantic lake and nature walk
