Southern Spotlight: Glory Restored at Barnsley Resort

Southern Spotlight: Glory RestoredAs years passed, Godfrey’s descendants were unable to maintain the extravagant estate and it fell into disrepair. In 1988, German Prince Hubertus Fugger and his wife, Princess Alexandra purchased the overgrown property and restored it. By 1999, rose gardens and the Manor House Ruins museum along with a Downing-style village, a championship golf course, a spa, and two restaurants had opened to the public.
