Woodchester Mansion & Selsley Church
(self drive)

Tuesday 28 April 2020

The visit to Woodchester Mansion and Selsley Chuch have had to be cancelled.  If you have made a booking for this visit you will be contacted directly by our Visits Secretary.

Woodchester Mansion is an unfinished, Gothic revival Mansion house in the National Trust landscape park of Woodchester near Nympsfield. The mansion, now owned by a separate charity, was begun in 1858 and abandoned by its builders in the middle of construction, leaving behind a building that appears complete from the outside, but with floors, plaster and whole rooms missing inside. It has remained in this state since the mid-1870s.

All Saints Church Selsley is just over 150 years old, the last of the great Cotswold wool churches, sponsored by the Marling Family, who founded the Grammar School in Stroud. Under William Morris’s leadership, the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood (including Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Ford Madox Brown) made All Saints their first stained glass commission. The result is a gem attracting visitors from all over the world.

In depth private tours of these Grade 1 listed buildings. Coffee and cake followed by guided tour of the Mansion. Light lunch at Selsley Church before a talk on the construction and decoration of the Church.

Price: £22.50 inc all refreshments & two guided talks. (NT car park ticket not included)
