The original 18th-century farmhouse was extended in the 19th century to create a stunning home for the Bantock family. Thomas Bantock, a canal and railway agent moved there with his family in 1864 and the arts and crafts style rennovations have been preserved for visitors to enjoy. The house was given to Wolverhampton City Council in the 1940s on the death of Baldwin Bantock. The house contains porcelain, enamels, japanned ware and Victorian paintings, many of which belonged to the Bantock family. It is set within a 43-acre park which includes, formal gardens, a children's play area and a 'pitch and put' course.
The park is situated just one mile from Wolverhampton city centre and parking is available on-site. The number 513 and 543 buses run from outside the front of the Art Gallery to the park.
