Charlecote’s timeline

If you’re a regular visitor to Charlecote, you may have notice that the downstairs room in the Gatehouse has been closed for a while. This has been because we wanted to create something special…

The Gatehouse was build in the mid 1500s and is Grade I listed. When you’re visiting, it is pretty much the first building you come across. For this reason it is the perfect location to give you an introduction to the site.

Our team wanted to use this space to give the long history of Charlecote. But there are so many stories to tell. How on earth do we share them all?

On a timeline!

The timeline follows the River Avon and takes you from the very earliest mentions of Charlecote in the doomsday book through to the National Trust acquiring the site in 1946.
