Whitmore Hall, Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire - In the same family for over 900 years, descendants of the Normans, the house is a fine example of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. It is built of warm brick, with pediment and a later, 19th century porch. One of the outstanding features of Whitmore is the extremely rare example of a late Elizabethan stable block, the ground floor is part cobbled and has nine oak-carved stalls.

The Pollok estate is the ancestral home of the Maxwell family – they lived there from the 13th century right up until 1966, when they gifted it to Glasgow City Council. The oldest property on the estate was a castle built in the early 1200s where the rhododendron garden is now. A second is thought to have been built 200 years later near the current stable block, followed by a third on the same site. Pollok House was built in 1752 but didn’t take its present shape until much later.
