Notes about this historic site

1 Coughton was acquired by the Throckmortons in the early 15th century. The present house of Coughton Court, east of the road, was begun in the early 16th century. It was never surrounded by an extensive designed landscape, but had several phases of garden and pleasure grounds. However Coughton Park, lying some way west of the Post Medieval house site, had already been enclosed in 1486, and additional enclosures here continued as late as the late 17th century.
2 The house has 15th century elements; the family has lived at Coughton Court since the early 15th century.
