This park was where Robert Wintour and Stephen Littleton, of the gunpowder plot fame were captured by authorities. The present hall wasn't constructed until over 150 years later. The house was then damaged by fire in 1925 but was painstakingly restored. Today the hall is still in use but the Wynchbury Hill is open to the public. You can view the outside of the hall from this area, it is a site to behold.
Located in nearby Wordsley is an interesting structure. The Red House Cone is just as it sounds, it is a 90 foot cone that was once used for the production of glass. The structure dates back to the late 1700s and is open to the public today as a site for craft shops, glass blowing demonstrations, provision for temporary exhibits and a cafe. Visitors can climb the platform to view the interior of the cone more closely. This is one of only 4 cones remain in the United Kingdom and is home to the only surviving moving lehr in the world.
