More about Wincombe Park
Wincombe House was built in about 1810, but the land that surrounds it has a history going back centuries. In the Middle Ages one of the lakes was used by the Abbess of Shaftesbury to provide fish for the inhabitants of the Abbey and there are some ancient trees standing in the Park which are marked on old maps.
