Longridge Towers School -
Guided tours

Longridge Towers was built between 1875 and 1879 for Sir Hubert Jerningham and his wife Lady Annie Jerningham. Designed by JC Bucker, the main house incorporated many features seen by Sir Hubert on his travels abroad and cost £145,000 to build, which was an enormous sum in those days. Following the death of Sir Hubert in April 1914, the house was mothballed and sold at auction in 1920 for the grand sum of £6,000 and since then has been used as a school except for a short time in the 1940s when it was a hotel.
