    The History


    Woodchester Mansion is an unfinished, Gothic revival mansion house in Woodchester Park near Nympsfield in Woodchester, Gloucestershire, England. It was formerly known as Spring Park.

    The mansion was 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.

    The mansion's creator William Leigh bought the Woodchester Park estate for 100,000 in 1854, demolishing an existing house on the site known as "Spring Park", which had been home to the Ducie family.

    Nice photographs. It's nice to see the building is being looked after and preserved.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
