CAVERSHAM PARK

DESCRIPTION + /

Country house, rebuilt after the fire of 1850 for William Crawshay, a Welsh iron master, who had bought the estate in 1838. The three storey house is built of stone around an iron frame. There are Ionic colonnades to each side, built in 1840, prior to the fire, with an orangery to the west. Extensions include a chapel on the east and a linked lodge to the north west, added in 1890. The house was damaged by fire in 1926 but restored. Formerly a school, it now houses the BBC World Monitoring Station and Radio Berkshire.
