East Rounton is a model village constructed for Sir
Isaac Lowthian Bell, the ironmaster on his estate near Rounton Grange
designed by Philip Webb. East Rounton church of St Lawrence contains a
splendid Strachan window and another side window celebrating the life of
the scholar, explorer, and arabist Gertrude Bell. The village hall
designed by George Jack is at East Rounton and there is a War Memorial in
front of it. West Rounton is about 1 mile away from East across the fields
and has the church of St Lawrence and two pubs, The Grey Horse and the
Horse Shoe Inn. West Rounton also contains Whitehouse plant nurseries and
is home to Stamfrey farm organic clotted cream. This website is maintained
