Barmpton Hall


Barmpton Hall, is a farmhouse located at the west end of the village of Barmpton. The farmhouse dates from the late 18th century with early 19th century additions. Barmpton Hall was the home of famous cattle breeder Robert Colling (1749-1820) who bred pedigree white shorthorned cows. One of his white heifers (daughter of the bull Favourite), which weighed 1,820 lbs, was painted by Thomas Weaver. One of his bulls called Comet sold for 1,000 guineas in 1812. Robert Colling died unmarried at Barmpton on 7th March 1820, leaving the property to his brother Charles (1751 - 1836), a sale being held on 3rd October 1820. The Farmhouse is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
