Perches House is a 16th century grade II listed building. Perche’s House was originally much larger than it is today, the building to the right was once part of it, the house was known as Perche’s Mansion until recent times. It stood alongside the likes of Gibbons Mansion, Ireland’s Mansion and Rowley’s House in terms of its status.
The building was restored by owner Mrs. D. Rose Roberts, in the late 1970s almost entirely by herself, in which she received a merit of achievement from the council.
In 1984 Perche’s House was used as part of the set for the film ‘A Christmas Carol’. The film boasted a £5 million budget and included stars such as Edward Woodward, Sussanah York, Frank Finlay and George C. Scott. The lower part of the house was decked with imitation snow and the ‘Scrooge’ sign hanging outside, the house was converted into the offices of ‘Mr Ebenezer Scrooge’.
