NORNEY GRANGE.

1897

Shackleford, Surrey.

For the Reverend Leighton Grane.

Additions and alteration to the house in 1903.

Unexecuted designs for new stable buildings and cottage for J. G. Wainwright, 1903.

The house was restored by Jack Warshaw.
 
The walls are roughcast, the windows mostly have stone dressings and the roofs are covered with green slates.

The house is broadly divided into two parts following the lifestyle of the period
with the larger and more impressive family accommodation on one side
and staff accommodation and service areas on the other. (Savills)

Bays under cross gables were already used at the mediaeval Old Weavers House at Canterbury A.D. 1500.

Stable Cottage

Stable Cottage provides three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and two reception rooms together with garaging for several cars and a stable block, Stable Lodge is the larger of the two cottages and is access of the Shackleford Road. (Savills)

In Ian Hamerton's opinion, the stable lodge at Shackleford Road was probably designed for Wainwright by one of the Müntzer family, most likely Thomas, son of the original builder and a pupil of Voysey.
