Cogan Pill House

Who built this late 15th/early 16th century house is not certain, but it was for generations, the home of members of the Herbert family.

Residents included William Herbert who sailed with Sir Walter Ralegh’s ill-fated expedition to Guiana in 1618-19, and his son, also William, who died when his Welsh regiment was cut to pieces at the battle of Edgehill in 1642.
