Woodchester Mansion

Woodchester Mansion is a 19th Century Victorian Gothic Masterpiece mysteriously abandoned mid-construction in 1873.

Hidden in a secluded Cotswold valley, it is untouched by time and the modern world. This Grade 1 Listed Building has been saved from dereliction, but will never be completed.

Visitors walk through an extraordinary architectural exhibit in which the secrets of the medieval Gothic builders and masons are laid bare. The carvings in Woodchester Mansion are among the finest of their kind in the world.

Woodchester Mansion Trust was founded to protect and to preserve this unique building for future generations and has pioneered a unique on-site masonry and traditional building skills training programme that is now being emulated across the UK.
