The grand house at the centre of this estate nearly disappeared following the Second World War after it had been trashed by Italian prisoners of war. Threatened with demolition it was rescued by Leonard Cheshire and later his wife Sue Ryder ran it as a home until a few years ago. It has recently been beautifully restored and although you cannot see inside (as it is a private house) the owners are happy for visitors to the national trust's Commonwealth church next door to walks past on their gravel drive.
