Red House Park
The Red House
Within the park is The Red House, a country house built in the 1841 for the then Liberal MP for Walsall, Robert Wellbeloved Scott, and stood in his 27-acre (11 ha) estate. Since 17 June 1996 it has been a Grade II listed building, statutory list reference: 5/110011 (179). It uses red bricks in Flemish Bond with stone dressings. It has a hipped roof with Welsh slates and brick chimneys.
Previously used as a convalescent home, the house was subsequently owned by Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council and leased to the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers. In 2015, it was sold to a developer for conversion into apartments.
The Park is also home to two small tunnel like structures known locally, and referred to on maps as, Hermit's Cave.
