Monksfield House originally belonged to the Morgan family from Wales according to records from the 17th century. It was sold in the mid-19th century to pay off debts and by the 1850s it was the residence of Thomas Shawe-Taylor. The estate is said to have been sold to tenants around 1908. After the estate was divided, the house continued to be occupied into the 20th century.

Most of the roof is still intact and the house is by no means too far gone to be saved. The internal walls are still there, along with some of the floors and ceilings. Even parts of the staircase still remain. However, if Monksfield House is left to battle against nature for much longer the floors and ceilings will collapse in on themselves.
