Together we can save the Red Wing
Historically and architecturally one of the most important estates in the West Midlands, Croome Court’s service wing, the Red Wing has slipped into a serious state of disrepair. But not only is a Grade I listed building at risk here, there’s also the possibility of losing centuries of fascinating stories encapsulated within it.
Designed and built by the landscape architect, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1750s, the Red Wing was once home to the many servants that kept Croome Court running smoothly. So as you can imagine, the Red Wing is rich in stories of life below stairs.
