"Colonel Davies’s widow married Sir John Pakington, afterwards Lord Hampton, and died in 1892, when the house passed to, Lieut.-General Henry Fanshawe Davies, J.P., D.L., son of General Francis John Davies.He was the last in the long line of squires to live in the great house, when he died in 1948 the house began its descent into ruin.

The property fell into the ownership of a Mr L.W. Hill a builder from Bourton on the water who, according to local opinion, demolished the building, just three weeks before a listing order would have preserved it for the nation.

Part of the site was used to build the houses at Parkwood and the surrounding fields and “Church Pond” were sold off. All that remains today of this once great house is the entrance, "
