Taking up the story from yesterday the Shirley family parcelled up and sold the Staunton Harold estate in 1954. The house was saved from demolition by Group Captain Lord Cheshire V.C to become one of his homes for the incurably sick, then, later become a Sue Ryder home. Now the house is the private residence of the Blunt family.
Two beautiful lakes are situated in the grounds of the estate and this one, Church Pool, is immediately in front of the house, whilst out of picture to the left is another which runs into the Severn Trent Water Staunton Harold Reservoir I believe.
