Fieldways Highfield

Grade II* listed Built in 1858 as the home of mill owner and philanthropist Sir William Roger Brown (who also commissioned the building of Trowbridge Town Hall and other properties as a gift to the town). The son of a tea merchant, Brown became a partner in his uncle’s Ashton Mills in the 1850s, and Brown & Palmer transformed it into one of the town’s most substantial businesses. Highfield is currently divided into two separate semi-detached properties. The main part of the building facing Hilperton Road is now the Fieldways Hotel and Health Club. The left-hand side of the building is a private residence known as Highfield. One of its most notable features is a glass “palm room” conservatory at the rear of the building.
