Overview

Millichope Park is a Greek-Revival building, with six Ionic pillars supporting its front portico.

It was built in the mid-19th century by Shropshire architect Edward Haycock for Reverend Norgrave Pemberton, Rector of Church Stretton, to replace a black and white timbered house.

In 1544, the More family brought Lower Millichope and Thomas More, who inherited the estate, started the creation of the pleasure park. The estate passed to his daughter, Catherine, then to her cousin, Robert Pemberton, after which, it descended to Norgrave Pemberton. He left the ‘new’ house, gardens and estate to his cousin, Charles Orlando Childe. He passed it onto his son, who sold the estate in 1896 to Captain Beckwith whose family thereafter descended.

The grade II*, 25-acre landscaped garden includes large lakes, cascades and the George Stuert temple, which pre-dates the house and is perched at the top of a steep cliff rising out of the lake. This, together with another garden monument, was built as a memorial to three sons from the More family, who died.
