  Shell House Talks - Gallery - St Audries House and Estate - West Quantockhead - NW Somerset  
     
 

The main house is now a hotel. The shell house was decorated by Christiana Balch in 1780 after her Grand Tour of Europe.
Exotic and native shells cover walls and imitation stalactites. She inherited the estate in 1814.
There is evidence of a rusticated Hermitage by a raised Ladies' Walk. Both features are in a perilous condition.
