HISTORY OF THE HOUSE

The land was bought in 1924 by Thomas H Shouksmith on which to build his own family home. He was one of the building engineers involved in the construction of Goddards for Noel Terry of the Terry's chocolate family, which is now owned by the National Trust. Shouksmith completed Springbank in 1926.
