History of Woodchester Mansion
This glorious Gothic 19th Century masterpiece was the brainchild of a William Leigh who purchased the land (formerly “Spring Park”) in 1854. He demolished the existing Ducie Family owned house to make way for this magnificent project – Woodchester Mansion – alas, the Mansion was never to be completed. In 1873, some 15 years after work was started, Leigh died and all work stopped. His surviving family pursued with little financial success to complete the Mansion. Records show that in 1894 the drawing room was updated and some rooms were habitable, but the family did not move in due to the sheer scale of incompletion. Leigh’s Grandaughters sold the estate to Barnwood House Trust, who intended to complete the mansion into a Mental Health Hospital but subsequently plans were shelved. During World War II the grounds were used by Canadian and American troops and the mansion itself, used as a training college. Soon after the war it was abandoned to the elements but likely survived vandalism due to its isolating location.
