Ribbesford House, Ribbesford - Wyre Forest

Mid-C16 country house with late C17 and early C19 alterations. The building is largely unoccupied and its condition has deteriorated over many years with significant areas open to the elements. Part of the outbuilding collapsed in poor weather in 2017. Following its sale at auction in 2018 a series of emergency works are currently underway to provide safe access to survey, record and stabilise priority areas whilst a plan for more comprehensive works is developed.
