Prior's Field,
originally called Prior's Garth.

1900

Puttenham, near Guildford,
Surrey.

For F. H. Chambers.

 

Chambers never lived in the house. It was sold after it was built to Leonard Huxley.
His wife, Julia Huxley, converted the building in a 'High Class School for Girls' in 1901-2.

Thomas Müntzer, Voysey's pupil, designed extensions to the school in 1904.
