History of Tettenhall Towers
Tettenhall Towers was once a large family home; The property is now a grade II listed building initially built as a country house on the site of The Holly Bush Inn by Thomas Pearson, on land purchased from the Foley family in the late 18th century. It is set on 26 acres in Wood Road, Tettenhall. In 1853, Colonel Thomas Thorneycroft purchased the property, and over the years, he extended the house, adding the 'towers', which gave it its name in 1866. The colonel was also a keen inventor, so he fitted so much ventilation in most rooms here. There was a sinister side to the Colonel because, among other things, Colonel Thorneycroft was known for pushing his butlers and servants off the top of the towers to test his flying machines, as he was a keen inventor. He also apparently used the towers as a means of communicating with his workforce across the Black Country, waving semaphore flags from the roof! Colonel Thorneycroft made many structural additions to the building, including a great hall complete with a stage and a theatre with seating for 500, featuring a giant indoor 44-foot cascade of water. His eccentricity was genius, and he did invent some essential elements of society, albeit by very controversial means. Inside Tettenhall Towers today, visitors will find a treasure trove of relics from past eras. Some of the more unusual would include Canadian fox rugs and a collection of bird heads. There have been some terrifying reports of paranormal activity on this site over the years, and some visitors have left the building, swearing never to return due to their experiences here.
