Situated in a rural spot in Wootton Wawen  is Wootton Hall. The former country house was built
in 1687 and constructed of Wilmscote stone and ashlar dressings. The house was owned by the Catholic recusant families Carrington, Holford and Smythe and believed to be a centre for Catholic worship during the recusancy. Wootton Hall was one of the first Italian Renaissance Palladian style mansions to be built.
