Hawkestone

near Hodnet, Shropshire - Viscount Hill


"This is described as a domain of a singular beauty; cragged rocks, hill and dale, wood and water, all contributing in tuen to set it off.

In the grounds are the remains of Red Castle, connected with the history of the family during the civil war; and on the highest part of a noble terrace is a column one hundred feet high, bearing a statue of Sir Rowland Hill, the first Lord Mayor of London of the Reformed Church.

The estate was formerly held by a family of the same name, one of whom, Sir George Hawkstone, of Hawkstone, was High Sheriff for the county in 1416.

Sir Richard Hill, in the reigns of William III., Anne and George I., died unmarried and left much of his large fortune between his nephews, Samuel Barber and Thomas Horwood, who both assumed the surname of Hill."
