Christopherson (1996) says that the site was originally a farm, and was bought by Gerald Askew in 1937. Together he and his wife enlarged the house, created a garden (Huxley, 1973) and started a collection of wildfowl. Gerald Askew died in 1970 and in 1978 his widow gave the property to East Sussex County Council, who opened it to the public (publicity notice included in file documents).
