The most prominent building is Kinloch House, designed and built by the radical MP George Kinloch in 1798, replacing an older house on the same site.[3] From around 1972, until his death in 1989, Kinloch House was the residence of Captain The 6th Earl of Enniskillen, M.B.E., an Anglo-Irish aristocrat. Popularly known as David Enniskillen, he had been born into a famous Ulster family and had spent much of his life in Kenya.
