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 site since Saxon times. The house is currently on Historic England's Heritage At Risk Register and along with the outbuildings is in a very bad state of repair. 

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. After 1000 years of private ownership West Horsley Place will be reborn as a place for everyone to enjoy, whether as a 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.
