The Woodchester Mansion was built next to the old church. In 1564, George Huntly was granted the manor. He decided to add a deer park, a seven-mile boundary wall around it, and a hunting lodge by 1610. This bankrupted the Huntlys, and the manor was sold to Sir Robert Ducie and his family in 1631. The area around the mansion expanded while he lived there. The mansion has been remodelled several times in the 1770s and 1830s. Now, it is believed that the mansion is haunted by several of the people who lived there.
