Badbrook House was located on the corner of Merrywalks and Beeches Green and was demolished to allow for road widening in 1967.

It was built for Thomas Holbrow in 1794. Paul Hawkins Fisher in his Notes and Recollections (1871), says that many people still remembered Mr Holbrow's kind hospitality and good temper, as well as the fine eagle which stood chained to its perch near the entrance door, and his white setter dog, Bacchus.
