Description

Tidwell

In 1730 the Tidwell Manor was bought by a barrister from Exeter named Waldron, who built the Tidwell House that we see today, partly hidden by a tree on the left. The property was finally acquired by Lord Rolle in the last century. There is a curious legend attached to Tidwell, pertaining to the time of Gabriel St. Clere. He is said to have declared "that neither he, nor his family could prosper while one stone stood upon another of that house, in which so many sins had been committed". About that time, it was rumoured that in the fishponds were found "a dead man, booted and spurred, and the bones of diverse children"
