Formerly the home of the Mander family who achieved wealth through the ownership of Manders paints, and fame through political representation in the Liberal party, Sir Charles Tertius Mander being the first of the Mander family to sit in the House of Commons. The house is now in the hands of the National Trust. The Mander family also owned the nearby 'Mount' which is now a hotel and conference centre with views as far as the Malvern hills over 40 miles away. Wightwick Hall is also in the vicinity, this was owned by the former Wolverhampton Mayor and industrialist Sir John Morris who was spontaneously knighted by Queen Victoria in 1866 at her first public appearance since the death of her husband Albert, for the unveiling of a statue of her dead husband. The house has now been turned into flats. The Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal runs through the valley beneath Wightwick manor, which runs concurrent in parts with the 'Bridgnorth Road'. Wightwick is an extremely pleasant part of the more traditionally affluent western side of Wolverhampton.
