17. Poundwell House
Set behind a high wall, Poundwell House is one of 131 Grade 2 listed buildings in the conservation area. It was also once the home of the Champernowne family. The building was later purchased in 1680 by Henry Legassike, who was Lord of the Manor. The building became the town Judicial Centre and a police station with cells or pounds hence its name Poundwell.
In the car park are mounted two Heritage Information Boards that contain all of the directions to the Town and Countryside trails. You can find details of the Countryside Trails on the Visit Modbury website.
This heritage trail project has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, South Devon Coastal Local Action Group, South Hams District Council, Modbury & District Business Chamber and The Modbury Society.
