Apley Park
(Secondary Modern
SO 79 NW 15/27 29.9.51.


One of the most famous seate of Shropshire. The present Gothic style
mansion erected circa 1812 (architect unrecorded) incorporating earlier
Georgian mansion. Built of Grinshill stone with battlemented parapets,
mullioned windows, oriels etc; southern front dominated by a central tower;
porte cochere to the east; end facade of old C18 house masked by false
chapel-like window. To the north, a symmetrical arrangement of sashes
makes the earlier building easily recognizable. Principal rooms have
typical mid-C19 "Gothic" decoration; plaster groined ceilings; double
staircase; marble mantlepieces brought from old Dorchester House; good
C18 staircase in kitchen wing. The present Dining Room, former Chapel,
probably altered circa 1870. The park is one of the finest in the county;
terrace over-looking Severn Valley; hanging woods to a great height lining
steep gorge of river.
