This house was built for a relatively little-known family (the Pigots) and has the unusual distinction of never having been sold.

The builder of Doddington was Thomas Tailor, a local man.

The church of St Peter in Doddington is sited next to the late Elizabethan Hall.

It is a wonderful Gothic rebuild of 1771-5 with only part of the old north aisle remaining. The west tower has touches of Strawberry Hill Gothick.
