Commissioned by the Bulkeley family, the building of Baron Hill began in 1612, but was not finished, until the house we see today – enclosing the original Jacobean works – was constructed in 1776-9. Gradual decline was accelerated when Polish troops were stationed there during World War II, a fire causing damage to part of the building. The mansion was completely abandoned after the War, decay and vandalism have now left it a ruin. There are currently proposals to renovate the buildings into 40+ apartments.
