The Mary Roxburghe Trust – the charity created to rescue and restore Grade I listed West Horsley Place and its surrounding 380 acre estate, and to establish there a vibrant centre for the performing and visual arts and for the teaching of crafts – has received welcome news of a £50,000 grant from the Country Houses Foundation.


The grant has been made towards the restoration of the Grade II listed Stable Block and Clocktower, dating from the 18th century and now in urgent need of repair. Once restored, the Stable Block will be open to the public for the teaching of visual arts and crafts.


Peter Pearce, Director of the Mary Roxburghe Trust, said: “Our sincere thanks to the Country Houses Foundation for this generous grant, which provides a wonderful boost to our campaign to rescue and restore West Horsley Place so that it can be enjoyed by the public.”
