Woodchester Mansion - an unfinished masterpiece


Visit England quality marqueWoodchester Mansion is a unique and amazing Grade I listed Victorian Gothic house hidden in a beautiful Cotswold valley.

It is an unfinished masterpiece. Building started about 1857, but stopped in the mid-1860s so floors and ceilings are missing, walls not plastered and windows unglazed.

LATEST: Masons' Lodge

Masons' Lodge

Work continues on the Masons' Lodge. The wooden building which will provide accommodation for stonemasons to work and to store their equipment has been constructed and the next steps are to complete painting the building and to fit it with water and electricity. Work continues inside the Mansion to create a classroom and rest area for masons. We plan that the facilities will be ready for City of Bath student stonemasons to use during their forthcoming training sessions at the Mansion.
