Gupshill Manor is steeped in history, most of it centering around the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471.
Gupshill Manor was built in 1431, on the site of an earlier house known as Globes Hall. In 1471 the manor house was literally at the centre of one of the last, and perhaps the bloodiest battles of the War of the Roses. The battle of Tewkesbury was fought between the houses of Lancaster and York, with the latter eventually becoming victorious, and Edward, The Duke of York, becoming King of England.
The manor has suffered two great fires in its history, one at the end of the 17th century, and more damaging, one in the early 1900’s which reduced the size of the manor house by half as you see it today.
In the main building, around the fire places you will see some ornately carved stonework, these pieces were stolen from Tewkesbury Monastery during King Henry VIII’s dissolution of the church.
more recently . . .
In the early 1950’s the Gupshill was converted into a public house, and since that time has undergone several styles of operation and many refurbishments to take it to the way you see it today.
