Frampton Court Estate
For nearly a thousand years Frampton Court Estate and the Clifford family have been at the heart of this ancient settlement, and the splendid buildings of the Estate around Rosamund's Green provide the architectural focal points of the village. The two grandest houses on the Estate - the striking timber-framed 16th century Manor and the splendid 18th century Frampton Court - face each other across the village green, reputed to be the longest in England.
Frampton Court is a Grade I listed country house and estate of about 1,500 acres (610 ha) in Frampton-on-Severn, Gloucestershire, England. It has been owned by the Clifford family since the 11th century. The main buildings are the 18th century Frampton Court and, on the opposite side of the village green, Manor Farm. The gardens at Frampton Court have a Gothic orangery and ornamental canal in the style of William Halfpenny.
