Ribbesford House, Ribbesford - Wyre Forest

Mid-C16 country house with late C17 and early C19 alterations. The building is largely unoccupied and has been neglected for many years with significant areas open to the elements. Part of the outbuilding collapsed in poor weather in 2017 and urgent works are required in order to prevent further deterioration. The house was put on the market and sold recently at auction reigniting hopes about its future.
