Withcote Hall, Oakham Road, Withcote - Harborough

Country house, early C18, incorporating earlier building, outbuildings and walled garden. Constructed of ironstone with Swithland slate roofs. Detailed condition survey carried out in early 2002 part-funded by Historic England. The house is in a very bad condition. The roof requires renewal. Extensive rot, evidence of structural movement and defective plasterwork, all result from water ingress. Historic England is providing advice to the owner, their family and Harborough District Council. Vegetation removal and some patch repairs have been carried out. The property is now unoccupied.
