Baddesley Clinton to Packwood walk

Walking trail

Baddesley Clinton is a secluded, intimate estate which was home to the Ferrers family for 500 years, whilst just over the fields Packwood was transformed by Graham Baron Ash in the 1920s from a 17th century farmhouse into a dream-like vision of a Tudor country home.
