Baddesley Clinton is a moored manor house located about 8 miles northwest of Warwick City, Warwickshire, England. The house actually arose in the 13th century, when large areas of the Arden Forest were cleaned up for farmland. The site is a Designated Ancient Monument and the house is a Grade I structure.

Other Information

In 1438 John Brome, England's Under-Treasurer, bought the manor that passed to his friend, Nicholas Brome, who restored the nearby parish church devoted to St. Michael as a punishment for murdering the parish priest, a felony allegedly committed inside the building. The house was fitted with gun-ports from this time, and probably a drawbridge over the moat. When Nicholas Brome died in 1517, the house passed to his aunt, who had wed Sir Edward Ferrers, Chancellor of Warwickshire, in 1500. The house stayed the property of the Ferrers family before 1940, when Thomas Walker, a friend of the family who changed his name to Ferrers, bought it. In 1980, his son, who inherited it in 1970, sold the estate to the National Trust, which now operates it.

In 1986, many of Baddesley Clinton's outdoor scenes were used by Granada Television for the Sherlock Holmes series in the episode "The Story of the Musgrave Rite." The house was the location for BBC One's Antiques Roadshow in October 2016. While identified as "Baddesley Clinton" on the screen, the area used for the outside filming of the 1603 assault in the first episode of the BBC 2017. 

One of the Gunpowder miniseries of incidents surrounding the Gunpowder Plot was not originally Baddesley Clinton, but Fountains Hall near Ripon in Yorkshire.
