About the Hall
Astbury Hall is a stunning Georgian stately home set in 300 acres of rolling hills in the heart of the Shropshire countryside.
The original Hall is believed to have been built during the reign of Henry III in the 13th century. It was destroyed by fire in 1889 and the present home was rebuilt in 1891 by Edmund Southwell who presided as mayor of Bridgnorth from 1895-1897. Mr. Southwell made his fortune as the owner of the carpet works on the banks of the River Severn and restored the Hall to its former glory.
At the beginning of the 20th century, John Arthur Buston, who was Master of the Wheatland hunt, resided at Astbury Hall from approximately 1911-1937. His portrait can still be seen today, proudly hanging in the Hall.
