Join us in the evolving story of West Horsley Place; breathing new life and purpose into an ancient manor house and estate that has been in private ownership for nearly a thousand years.

Thanks to the generosity and vision of Bamber and Christina Gascoigne's original gift, West Horsley Place will be open to all, with culture, community and history at its heart. The Mary Roxburghe Trust is a heritage charity that wants to make a difference to others while creating a sustainable future for this warm, beautiful and neglected treasure.

Restoration of the buildings and the pursuit of creativity and learning will take place side by side. We will explore our built and natural heritage through arts and culture, developing a range of learning programmes and events for our local and wider communities. West Horsley Place combines to a rare degree the natural pleasures of architecture, countryside and woodlands and the joys of creative activity, all on an intimate and informal scale.

Delight in the tranquillity of the gardens or the liveliness of a spectrum of activities. Explore a thousand years of people and their stories. Become part of the story.

Discover, enjoy, learn, find inspiration.

Our vision for West Horsley Place, to be achieved over the next ten years is:

  • To restore the Grade I listed West Horsley Place and the Grade II listed buildings across the estate so that they are no longer on Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register.

  • To develop a wide range of cultural and learning programmes in arts and crafts, historic and natural heritage that are accessible to as many people as possible.

  • To restore the natural landscape and estate as part of a county-wide nature recovery network.

  • To be sustainable – environmentally, socially and financially.
