Notes about this historic site

1 Manufactory known as the Marble Yard built in 1625. Not known what was manufactured specifically as source document more interested in charting the social and economic history of the Parkes family on the environs of Warwick, who purchased the site in 1790. It is clear, however that the Marble House was something akin to a mansion by the 19th century following various refurbishments and extensions. Site redeveloped.
