Cowlinge, Suffolk

Cowlinge in The County of Suffolk, a few miles south east of Newmarket and a stones throw from the Cambridgeshire border. It is blessed with a fine Public House and once upon a time there was a splendid country house and estate landscaped by Capability Brown, the manor and lands were acquired by the London Lawyer Francis Dickins in 1720 who set about building a new house and was also responsible for the tower on the church of St Margaret of Antioch.

When Francis’s died in 1747 the manor passed to his wife until her death in 1761, the estate then passed to a cousin, Ambrose Dickins who was responsible for hiring Capability Brown which was not without its controversy.

If you are looking for the house that Francis built you will be disappointment as it was demolished around 1959 but you can fined Francis and his wife in all there Scheemakers glory in the chancel of St Margaret of Antioch.
