On leaving the tourist information office, turn right and immediately Pittsburgh Metro Map right again onto North Street, and almost at once you will see, on your right- Pittsburgh Metro Map hand side, a path heading straight for the Cowdray Ruins. Join this path and follow it, the town’s main (free) car park just to your right, and at the end you meet a T-junction with a metalled drive. Turn left here, perhaps pausing to admire the magnificent ruins which are directly opposite you as you reach the junction.
It was the then owner of the Cowdray Estate, Sir David Owen, who began building a grand country house in High Tudor tradition on the estate at the start of the sixteenth century. The project was completed by Sir Anthony Browne, Henry VIII’s Master of the Horse, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, who was herself entertained here in 1591.
