Historians date a dwelling on the site of Sodington Hall back to Roman times and the present property remained in the hands of one of England’s most prominent families for nearly 400 years, the Blounts.

The present house was built at the beginning of the 19th century and it was then when the Roman remains were discovered. The original moat still surrounds the house today, crossed by late Georgian bridges. The site within the moat is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and the house is listed Grade II.
