West Horsley Place is a Grade I listed mediaeval manor house and estate of great beauty and historic significance. The manor house dates from 1425, though there has been a building on the site since Saxon times. The house is currently on Historic England’s At Risk Register and along with the outbuildings is in a very bad state of repair.

The Mary Roxburghe Trust’s mission is to restore the house, gardens, 380 acre estate and 8 Grade II listed outbuildings, as well as creating here a vibrant centre for the performing and visual arts and the teaching of crafts. After 1000 years of private ownership West Horsley Place will be reborn as a place for everyone to enjoy, whether as an opera guest, visitor to the house or garden or as a student learning a new craft. There is a great history to be discovered, and a new role for this grand old house to play in its community.

83 years ago today Mary Crewe-Milnes married George Innes-Ker, 9th Duke of Roxburghe at Westminster Abbey. It was a glittering affair with royalty in attendance and was the front page of Tatler. #WestHorsleyPlace #TodayinHistory #BritishAristocracy #WestminsterAbbey
