West Horsley Place is a Grade I listed medieval manor house and estate of great beauty and historic significance. The manor house dates from 1425, though there has been a building on site since Saxon times. The house is currently on Historic England’s Heritage At Risk Register but immediate structural remediations have been addressed and a phased programme of repairs is in progress.
The West Horsley Place Trust aims to restore the house, gardens, 380-acre estate and 8 Grade II listed outbuildings to create a vibrant centre for the performing and visual arts and the teaching of crafts. Grange Park Opera are in residence in a recently built auditorium in the grounds. Further uses are being explored.
