Canons Ashby House

Houses, Gardens and Parks

Canons Ashby was first built by the Dryden family during the Elizabethan period, using stone from the Augustinian priory which previously occupied the site.  The private church is all that remains of the priory. The interior is welcoming and atmospheric, with Jacobean wall paintings, plasterwork and tapestries.  The house was updated in the 18th century with the south-facing rooms remodelled, and again in the 19th century, when Sir Henry Dryden's The Antiquarian recorded much of the history of the estate and the surrounding area.  The gardens are currently being restored to their colourful designs from Sir Henry's records.
