Lynden Manor Bray, Berkshire
Dating from the 13th Century, Lynden Manor at Holyport passed through many ownerships over the years, including the Crown in the 15th century. Originally moated, the property was largely demolished in 1846, not long after the moat had been filled in. More recently, Lynden Manor was owned by George Mountbatten, 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven, brother of Lord Mountbatten of Burma and uncle of Prince Philip. The latter lived here, whilst not in attendance at Cheam School, between 1928 and 1933. In 1951, the house was sold to Albert Frederick Hare, an architect, who designed the division of the building.
Lynden Manor has
been divided into a number of private houses. One of its constituent parts
was last offered for sale by FPD Savills in 2001.
