Gatton Hall, Surrey

Although we have lived in the area for over 20 years and been past this many times we had never been inside Gatton Hall until yesterday. Here are a few snaps taken on a tour of part of the grounds.

The Gatton Town Hall was built when Gatton had a population of about 100 people and returned 2 Members of Parliament – the results had to be declared under a solid roof. The buildings behind are part of the Royal Alexandra and Albert school.

The gardens were landscaped by Capability Brown. The Hall is mainly a replacement as the original house was destroyed by fire in the 1930s. It was owned by Jerimiah Colman (known for Colman’s mustard).
