Scotsborough House, Gumfreston

Concern expressed by local people at the rapidly deteriorating condition of Scotsborough House scheduled ancient monument, Gumfreston, near Tenby, prompted a short programme of building recording prior to further collapse and loss.

Scotsborough is a late medieval house in the possession of the Perrot family from the early 15th century to the early 17th century. It is clear from the surviving remains that it has a very complex structural history. It was ruinous by the early 19th century.
