Aldenham Park, Bridgnorth, Shropshire

Grade II* Palladian house. It has strong links with Charles I who took refuge here in a priest hole from Oliver Cromwell (leaving his coat behind) and, later, Charles II presented the Acton family with a fine Van Dyck portrait of his father. This still hangs in the saloon. It was sold by the Acton family to the present owner’s grandfather in 1959 and is now a private family home, which is not normally open to the public.
