We have been informed by the venue contact that the building is no longer in a good condition following the theft of the roof. As a result the leaders of the tour have cancelled the building opening for health and safety concerns. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment caused.
The building was originally designed in Bath stone by John Strachan in the 1730s as a manor-house for John Cossins, known as Redland Court. In the late 19th century, the impressing Geogian building was converted into Redland High School, with many extensions added throughout the following 140 years. The site is being redeveloped into residential flats, with full restoration work to take place in 2019. Many of the original features are still intact, including reclaimed 16th century panelling believed to have been salvaged from the original Tudor mansion on this site.
