Wolterton Hall was built by Thomas Ripley in the 1720's for Horatio Walpole, politician, diplomat and younger brother of Britain's first Prime Minister - Sir Robert Walpole. The property was restored in 1905.

The Park contains evidence of the village of Wolterton and its round church tower can still be seen. The 18th century walled garden is now let and run by Barker Organics as a smallholding.
