Bushwood Hall, Bushwood Lane, Lowsonford, Warwickshire, B95

Bushwood Hall on Bushwood Lane a lovely start and such a lovely place to begin this story of fashionable addressed to James Blunt and the incredible album Afterlove!! The day in 1976 a hot summer in Lowsonford, it is a small village within the parish of Rowington in Warwickshire, England. The village lies 4 miles (6.4 km) north-east of Henley-in-Arden and I was digging out the moat for Grandpodes as he carried-on with his thick stutter in explain.

Stratford Hall comes to thought as Uncle Dennis owner of his manner, the marking of this wonder of a rise to what is proper introduction to Mr. Blunt and his lyrics, The Front!! Uncle Dennis gave rise to the first punting experience on his own property with a pond where he in yet a thicker stutter mumbled in the library on another day as I wondered on the horse stable with the clock. In response, as Uncle Dennis in a single status, and, a Gentleman of uniform appeal announced in great clarity often an address, the bloody Town......... His brother, my Grandpodes speaking in a stutter 'saving the moat' breaks the mold today the 19th of February 2017! Those ole blokes were in chorus of define, never did I think to thought of philosophy of speech: The Brits do their 'kenning' in description and The Canal, that Stratford-upon-Avon Canal meandering through Henley-in-Arden to spell it all out as gently as the ............Cup of tea, the hot summer in England, give say to Waters Upton which is a small village and civil parish in Shropshire, England. The population of the Civil Parish at the 2011 Census was 951 and recorded in the Domesday book as "Uptone", when it was stated to be tenanted by a "Seuuard", and to have been held by a man called "Gamel" before the Conquest.......

In addition, the larger villages of Knowle, Dorridge and Hockley Heath are close to hand as is Solihull town centre with its extensive and unrivalled amenities, including the new Touchwood shopping centre.

Bushwood Hall
Bushwood Hall occupies an idyllic rural location on the outskirts of Lowsonford village and in the heart of the Tapster valley and is one of the few moated properties in the area, dating back to the 16th century.
Steeped in history, the site of this moated manor house can be traced back to 1314 when there was a stone gatehouse on the site built by Sir John de Bishopsden, which was erected to link to the drawbridge over the moat. The timbers forming the lower part of the drawbridge were excavated in 1961 and are preserved in one of the barns.
The moat, which is certainly older than 1314 has been carefully preserved and has water all the way round, being fed by springs and overflowing into the nearby Tapste Brook. Interestingly, Robert Catesby, leader of the 1605 Gunpowder plot was born at Bushwood Hall in 1573 and the original stone house was superseded by a newer more comfortable house in or around 1600 and this forms the rear portion of the current Bushwood Hall. The front part of the house was probably built circa 1800 and was a working farm until 1960.
The current Grade II listed Bushwood Hall presents a most appealing elevation and forms a very quintessential English period property with its extensive range of outbuildings, orchard, gardens and moat. The character accommodation briefly offers
*Reception/Music room **Lounge with inglenook *Family Room *Dining Room *Breakfast Kitchen *Cloakroom *Cellar
Two double bedrooms both connecting to dressing room/bedroom 5 with bathroom leading off
