Bloxworth House was built by George Savage in 1608 on an E shaped plan and can claim to be the earliest use of brick in the county. The house was bought by Henry Trenchard in 1689 and remained within the ownership of the Trenchard family and their descendents right up until 1964 when the Estate was sold. Bloxworth House was used as the home of Thomas Hardy’s heroine Bathsheba Everdene (Julie Christie) in John Schlesinger’s acclaimed 1967 film adaptation of “Far from the Madding Crowd”.
The Mill: This five storey mill was converted by the current owner in the 1960s and has seen little alteration since. It has been vacant for the last 12 years or so and used more for storage and therefore is in need of refurbishment. It has a living room on the ground floor, a kitchen floor, three bedrooms and bathroom over two floors and an upper floor with panoramic views across the roof tops of Diss to the north and fields to the south.
superlambanana features heavily in this house. It is included in the sale apparently.
