Childwick Bury Stud
Originally built in 1888 by Sir John Blundell Maple as part of his Childwick Bury estate, he bred and raced Thoroughbreds and built Childwick Bury Stud into a very successful horse breeding operation. Another prominent racehorse owner, Jack B. Joel, bought the estate including the stud farm farm around 1906. On his death in 1940, his son Jim Joel took over the operation. He too became a successful racehorse owner and breeder and maintained the property until 1978 when the stud and the manor were sold separately. .
Childwick Bury Stud is currently owned by the Marquesa de Moratella.
