HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT

The house, which is situated on an earlier site, was built between 1602 and 1612, and altered during the 1860s and 1870s. There are landscaped grounds dating back to the 19th century on the slope to the river Yeo to the east. There was much activity from 1909-14 and again from 1920-38, when the region round the main pond was developed.
