Newark House, Hempsted


Notes: The Newark was described c. 1540 as a pretty stone house. It was rebuilt by Viscount Scudamore in the mid 17th century and was described c. 1710 as a handsome, beautiful house. It is said, however, to have remained unfinished until c. 1830 when John Higford rebuilt it as a plain ashlar-faced mansion, incorporating part of the old foundations. In the early 1860s it was occupied by a private school. From 1883 until c. 1910 it housed a branch of St. Lucy's Home, Gloucester, training girls for domestic service. In 1986 it was occupied as flats.
