This magnificent mid-eighteenth-century house is Grade II* listed.

This view shows the five-bay frontage with handsome central panelled door with fanlight over; Venetian window above; and Diocletian window on the top floor.

From the facade the house looks down towards the valley of the River Bain.

It has been the family home of local MP, Sir Peter Tapsell and his wife.

Built within the fabric of the roadside boundary wall of Roughton Hall are these two metal containers.

They are cast with ‘PT’ (Peter Tapsell?) and GT (Gabrielle Tapsell?) at the top edge and the left hand one also has the words ‘ROUGHTON HALL’ along the bottom edge.

They now seem to be sealed but would appear to have been for the delivery of letters and parcels.

St Margaret’s, Roughton, has a Perpendicular brick tower on a greenstone base, nave with Transitional doorways and a chancel from the late thirteenth-century.

The interior contains some old woodwork and a wonderful monument to Norreys Fynes (died 1735), a non-juror and estate steward. A welcoming church.

The porch shown in the drawing no longer exists however there is a central blocked doorway on the south side of the nave which was presumably the entrance.
