From Monday 21st through to Friday 25th May 2018, our year six pupils and selected staff set off for fun, team building and adventure at the amazing Condover Hall.
Condover Hall is steeped in history with earliest records describing the Saxon village of Condover as a rural manor, forming part of the estate of Roger De Montfort, Earl of Shrewsbury. It returned to the crown when his son, the 3rd earl, rose against Henry I and was deprived of his honours in 1102. Through the 16th century the house was again passed in and out of crown ownership until 1586 when Elizabeth I granted Condover Estate to Thomas Owen.
The mansion house, as seen today, was built for Thomas Owen, purportedly by Walter Hancock, a distinguished Shropshire mason from Much Wenlock. The current house was not completed until 1598, the year of his death and possibly finally completed by his son, Sir Roger Owen.
As you can see from the gallery below (pictures taken by Lucy), the children had an amazing time with a plethora of exciting, daring and extremely challenging activities, both physically and mentally. For a larger view, please click on the thumbnails below. We do hope that you enjoy the images.
